Be very careful near schools, playgrounds and bus stops. Never pass a school bus loading or unloading children, and watch out for children walking and on bicycles. DON'T SPEED! Make sure you can stop quickly! Make sure your child is safe this school year by following a few simple steps: Food safety: When packing a lunch for your child, make sure you keep items that need to be cold (like cheese or yogurt) at the proper temperature by storing them inan insulated container. Transportation safety: If you are buying a new bike helmet for your child before school, make sure it fits correctly and refer to the helmet wearing instructions to ensure the safest ride. 1 Product safety: Make sure any products, from art supplies to lunch boxes, are certified under the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA). Playground safety: Playgrounds are fun areas for kids of all ages but they can be dangerous. Encourage kids to play with the existing play structures and to never add jump ropes or other toys because they may introduce a strangulation risk. With these safety issues talked about and taken care of, nothing should stand in the way of a great start to the school year for you and your child.
