Top 5 Back-to-School Safety Hacks

There’s no denying that summer is drawing to a close and our Arizona students are quickly approaching the new school year. Keeping children safe is the top priority, especially for younger children and those heading to school for the first time. As the new school year begins there are a few things we can do as parents, caregivers and drivers to ensure kids have a great start and a safe experience. Here are some the top 5 back-to-school safety hacks to remember for the new Arizona school year!

1.) Make sure the child knows their phone number, address, how to get in touch with their parents at work, how to get in touch with another trusted adult and how to dial 9-1-1.

2.) Teach your children not to talk to strangers or accept rides from someone they don’t know.

3.) When dropping off students, don’t park alongside another parked vehicle; it blocks visibility for other children and vehicles.

4.) Don’t block crosswalks when stopped at red lights or while waiting to make a turn.

5.) If the yellow or red lights are flashing and the stop arm is extended on a school bus, traffic must stop on both sides of the street.
