Student Safety Tips

Stranger/Danger Safety Tips

Please review the following stranger danger tips with your parent or guardian. Be aware that bad people do not always look mean or scary. If you find yourself in a dangerous situation, leave immediately and talk to a trusted adult, such as a teacher, coach, police officer, or parent.

  • Don't talk to strangers. Don't share any personal information with strangers (i.e. name, address, etc.).

  • Don't take anything from strangers.

  • Don't go anywhere with someone you don't know.

  • Stay more than an arm's reach from strangers. If you are approached by a stranger, seek help immediately from a trusted adult.

  • Trust your instincts, if you feel you are being followed or something is not right, seek help immediately.

  • Use the buddy system. Avoid walking anywhere alone.

  • If a stranger grabs you, do everything to stop them from pulling you away. Yell for help and attract the attention of others who can help you.

  • Go home directly after school. Do no loiter around the surrounding streets, parks, 7-11, and courts.

  • Report any suspicious activity to a trusted adult. If that adult does not listen, keep telling until someone listens.

  • Be alert of your surroundings and let others know where you will be and what time you will be back.

Traffic and Pedestrian Safety Tips

Unintentional pedestrian accidents are the fifth leading cause of injuries in the United States for children ages 5 to 19. Students should pay attention to the traffic lights and pedestrian crossing signals. The school’s surrounding streets are very busy with traffic, so it is important that students practice safety and caution at all times. Please review the following traffic and safety tips.

  • Always stop, look left, right, and left again before crossing the street. Continue looking at the road until safely across.

  • Don't run on roads. Use designated pedestrian crossing for walking across the road.

  • Put phones, headphones, and devices down when crossing the street.

  • It is always best to walk on sidewalks or paths and cross at street corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible.

  • Pay attention to the movement of vehicles around you.
