Safety Tips

  • Walk or ride your bike in groups when possible

  • Walk or ride your bike on designated sidewalks, do not travel through ally’s or on the street

  • Do not talk to strangers

  • Never get in a vehicle with someone you don’t know

  • If you are approached by a stranger or asked to get into a vehicle with someone you don’t know come back to the school, go to the nearest home and ring the doorbell, go into the nearest business and report the event to an adult.  If you have a cell phone call 911, call your parent/guardian

  • If someone tries to force you into a vehicle scream, yell, kick, hit and run to the nearest home or business

  • Before school starts, in the evening or over the weekend have your parents time how long it should take you to walk or ride your bike from the school home so everyone has an idea of when they should expect you home each day.  

  • Call or text your parent/guardian when you arrive home so they know that you made it safe

  • Do not go to a friends house, to the park or attend a Jr/Sr High activity without your parent/guardian’s permission so they know where you are at and when they can expect you home  

  • Safe Routes to School

    • Students living on the West side of town: Each block walks to Kellogg St. and walk together to Interocean Ave. crosswalk and cross together to the elementary schools and then to the Jr/Sr High school

    • Students living on the East side of town: Walk to Gordon St. walk together to Morlan St. to the elementary or Jr/Sr High school.  Students on the South side of the Jr/Sr High school walk to Reynolds to Kellogg to the elementary or the Jr/Sr High school.
