With the end of summer vacation here, students and parents alike are getting into the swing for the start of new school year. While kids are probably more concerned with making the last days of summer count, parents want to make sure their child is not only prepared for the classroom, but safe. If you haven’t already done so, parents can help their children get ready for fall with these back-to-school safety tips:
Make sure your child eats a healthy breakfast at home every morning or through our school breakfast program so they have the energy they need to stay focused throughout their day.
Teach your child about the “do”s and “don’t”s of playground safety to ensure a fun and safe recess.
Bring your child to a clinic or pediatrician for any required immunization shots to keep them healthy during the fall and winter months.
Whether you pack your child’s lunch or they buy from the cafeteria, make sure they get the nutrition they need at school.
Teach your child about school bus safety to ensure they get to and from school without injury.
Learn about available school health services and get to know the staff that can help take care of your child if they become sick at school.
Preparing your child for a safe and healthy return to school is a great way to ensure they get the most out of their education. Please let us know how we can help your son or daughter get the most out of their education here at the Lake Holcombe.
The beginning of the school year is a good reminder that school buses will soon be on the roads again. Every day Wisconsin school buses carry our most precious cargo, our students. School buses are equipped with an 8 light system that includes flashing AMBER lights. The flashing AMBER lights mean that a bus is going to stop. Drivers are advised to proceed with caution. A flashing RED light means drivers must stop at least 20 feet from the school bus. Passing a stopped school bus is against the law and violators may be issued a ticket/fine and may lose 4 points on their driver’s license. Remember RED means STOP and AMBER means going to be STOPPING.
Please let us know how we can help your son or daughter prepare for the upcoming school year. We want your student’s back to school transition to be a smooth one.
We’ll see you at Open House on August 28 from 5-8 PM.
