Peel Regional Police Crime Prevention Services released safety tips for parents and caregivers to pass on to children returning to school this week. These simple tips will help make sure children are safe and successful in school.
Safety tips include:
- Never place your child’s name on the exterior of their clothing or lunchbox.
- If your child will be walking to and from school, take time to familiarize them with the best route by walking the route with them.
- Develop an easy-to-remember password, such as the child’s favourite sports team, in the event that you have to rely on a friend to pick your child up. The password will let your child know that that it is ok to go with that person as they have received your permission.
- Make sure your child has memorized their personal information and knows how to contact you.
