Back to School Reminder from Representative Maria Syms
Home Back to School Reminder from Representative Maria Syms
August 9, 2017
As a mom to children going back to school this week, I am vested in making sure our children are safe so they can focus on the important business of learning. Let's get this school year off to a great start by remaining vigilant, especially in school zones. Talk to your children about paying attention to their surroundings and reinforce safety rules with them. Together, we can help make the school year a success for everyone!
- Obey all traffic laws and speed limits in school zones.
- Stop for school buses when they are loading and unloading children.
- Watch for children in our communities playing near bus stops, crosswalks, etc.
- Talk about safety rules with your children and encourage them to report any unusual activity.
- Do not text and drive.
- Report any suspicious behavior to police immediately.
