As children start heading back to school and family life gets pretty hectic, the safety and security of our children often take a back foot. Back-to-school doesn’t have to mean back-to-worrying.
Though safety inside our child’s school is ultimately the responsibility of the school, parents can adopt some measures to ensure a safe school experience, too.
It is important to share with our children – some key tips and school safety rules that will keep them safe and healthy throughout the school year.
1.Learn the school’s emergency procedures
School phone numbers are usually included in school handbooks. Parents can make their children familiarize themselves with emergency information and provide them with the confidence to act quickly in emergencies.
2.Know travel routes to and from the school
Parents and children must know both primary and alternate routes. In an emergency, roads can be blocked and a backup plan is always required.
3.Know and follow school security and safety measures
These include signing in when visiting the school, being escorted when walking through the building, or wearing a visitor pass. Following these procedures also sets a great example for our children.
4.Talk with the child about safety
This refers to talking about instinct and paying attention to feelings of fear. Explaining what to do if a child doesn’t feel safe.
5.Inform school staff about health and emotional concerns
Whether a child has a food allergy, a physical disability, or has been subject to bullying, make sure to keep the child’s teachers and principal in the loop.
Parents expect schools to keep their children safe from a range of emergency events, like crime, natural disasters, and accidents. School safety and security should be one of the most important factor while choosing school for the child.
