Back To School Safety Tips for Parents and Students

The week of September 17-21 marks the 14th annual Safety Week at all DDSB schools.

During this time, we will be reviewing general safety tips in an age-appropriate manner with students in all schools.

As a general reminder to assist parents/guardians, we have compiled a list of safety guidelines to review with your child now and at any time of year.

Staff, students, and parents work and communicate together to make a difference for our learning environment. Communication continues to be the key to our success.  Please discuss the following suggestions with your family so that safe strategies are reinforced.

Safety Guidelines:

  • Always walk with a buddy to and from school
  • Do not talk to strangers
  • Inform your parents and the school if a stranger approaches you
  • Remember, adults do not ask for directions from children
  • Always let your parents know if there has been a change in your plans
  • Avoid taking shortcuts through fields and parks
  • Never walk alone, especially at night
  • Be aware of your surroundings when wearing earphones
  • It is okay for children not to speak to adults who they do not know

Please take a moment to review these tips with your child. Together, we can keep our school and community a safe environment for our children.
