Tips for Child’s School Safety
The Dawn Center has put together a few back to school safety tips.
- On Transportation Safety: Whether children walk, ride their bicycle or take the bus to school, it is extremely important that they take proper safety precautions.
- Teach them to pay attention to their surroundings; listening to music on earphones or playing handheld video games decreases awareness of potential danger.
- Talk to your children about always walking or playing in groups.
- Designate safe places for them if trouble arises.
Remember, positive relationships between students and their peers, teachers, and families can be critical assets in assessing youth’s well-being! Parent involvement in both academic and social aspects of their children’s school experiences – including prevention programs – family cohesion and communication.
Children who experience domestic violence may be more vulnerable to being approached by the abusive parent during the school year as they spend more time out of the home. When you need to take additional steps to remain safe, here are some ideas:
- Give the principal at school (or daycare center) a copy of any court orders that discuss contacts with children; tell them not to release your children to anyone without talking to you first; use a password so they can be sure it is you on the phone; give them a photo of the abuser.
- Make sure the children know who to tell at school if they see the abuser.
- Make sure that the school knows not to give your address or phone number to ANYONE.
- Make sure that the children know how to get in contact with you and other safe adults
