Chief Carroll's Back-To-School Safety Tips

As summer draws to a close, back-to-school season is in full effect.

 Whether it is the child’s first day of Kindergarten or the final year of their senior year, we as a community must be aware of the dangers to avoid a tragedy.

 Remember to safely share the roads with school buses, pedestrians and bicyclists, and provide children with the necessary knowledge to stay safe at school. Do not be a distracted driver by talking on your cell phone or texting while attempting to drive. Be responsible and pay attention to the task at hand in order to give every child a safe school year.

  Safety Tips For Drivers
Whether children walk, ride their bicycle or take the bus to school, it is extremely important that they - and the motorists around them - take proper safety precautions​.
