Spring Outdoor Safety Tips

As the weather warms up, review these outdoor safety tips with your student: 

  • Never leave children alone outside. Teach children not to play near, or in, the street.
  • Check the outdoor play area routinely. Remove all trash, sharp objects, tools, and lawn equipment that could result in accidental injury.
  • When using ride-on toys, ensure that children of all ages are wearing a helmet to prevent head injury.
  • Always use safety straps to secure children in strollers. Do not put children who cannot sit up well in wagons with low sides.
