Back To School: Bike Safety, Stranger Danger

Make sure your kids are prepared

Six days of summer left for the kids before they had back to class, South Simcoe Police officer Rich Williamson hoping parents will be offering their kids some life-lessons in advance. Things like
bicycle safety, for those who will be riding to school…

Good idea, too says Williamson, to take kids who will be walking to school along the route they’ll use, pointing out places to take shelter in bad weather of if they’re afraid; also mapping out a good route to school, not one that takes them off the beaten track. And don’t forget about Stranger Danger…

Remember to tell the kids not to share that ‘code word’ with anyone.
