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.
