Going Back to School Safely
Good Afternoon 5D Community,
The Metropolitan Police Department is looking forward to a safe school year and wants to help parents ensure their children are well-educated on how to get to and from their school safely.
Take the time this week to educate your children on how to protect themselves from strangers and how to safely walk or ride public transportation to school.
Tips for Today
Share with a Student, Tell Your Friends, Print out tips to give information to Neighbors,
Never run into the street; when you come to the curb, STOP; then look both ways. Never run between cars into the street. Walk on the sidewalk, not in the street.
Be sure to cross the street at a marked cross walk or where the crossing guard is. Only walk when the signal flashes the walk sign or when a crossing guard says it's okay.
Never take a short cut through the woods or alleys.
If you see a gun or drugs, stop. Don't touch it. Tell an adult!
