Tips from your Com­mu­nity Polic­ing Of­fi­cer

Well this is it. School is open. Okay par­ents, let’s get or­ga­nized.

Here are some things to re­mem­ber and look for.

• Try not to let your kids carry too much in their back­packs. They don’t need to bring home ev­ery book ev­ery­day.

• Make sure they have a lock for their locker, and help them re­mem­ber the com­bi­na­tion. Re­mind them not to share it with oth­ers.

• Re­mind your child that even though they have ac­cess to com­put­ers in school, they should still use them re­spon­si­bly and also keep their pass­word pri­vate.

• Kids grow un­til they are 20, so healthy food and nutrition is im­por­tant. Plan their meals, and make sure they are get­ting the food that will fuel their brains and body.

• Make sure they get their rest. If they stay up too late, on sum­mer hours, they are sleep­ing in school.

• Bul­ly­ing is al­ways an is­sue and usu­ally the kids claim their territories early in the school year. Tell your child to re­port bul­ly­ing. Tell a teacher, tell a friend, tell their par­ents. Bul­lies only have power if we keep their bul­ly­ing a se­cret.
