It's National School Bus Safety Week (Oct. 18-22)! Here are some important tips for drivers on the road and students on the bus to help keep everyone safe.
SRO Deputy Espel visited classrooms to share Halloween safety tips. Some tips were to carry a flashlight while trick or treating so you are visible, look both ways before crossing the street, and get your candy checked before eating it. Deputy Espel also asked students to practice reciting their addresses and phone numbers so they can easily get home if they need help.
It's wonderful to see Pre-Kindergarten students in the classroom engaging in hands-on learning and play!
