Summer is coming to an end and many Ventura County young people are heading back to school starting this week.

Let’s all work together to keep everyone safe — by eliminating distractions while driving and walking; by keeping conversations going between youth and adults about making good decisions; by working together!

National Safety Council (NSC) offers up many school and student safety tips — for getting to/from school successfully (by eliminating distracted walking and driving and observing laws); playground safety, backpack safety, and more.

NSC also has several effective PSAs on their site, including important information to parents about bullying.
