Back to School Safety Tips

Schools are back in session!  Kids are excited about their new school year and are busy catching up with friends and they may not always be aware of their surroundings as they walk, bicycle, or bus to school.  The County is asking drivers to take special care while driving, especially in school zones.  This is also a good time to sit down with your child to go over some road safety rules and tips.  For some helpful tips for parents, caregivers, children and drivers, the National Safety Council has provided three great resources: Back to School Checklist, Traveling to School Safely, and Back to School Tips for Motorists.  For more great information click here.
