School safety should be a right for all students alike. It’s up to you as a parent to teach your child about bullying. Empower your children with the facts and ways to stop bullies in their tracks.
Bullying is a serious problem that can a have long-term negative impact on the victim, the bully and the bystanders.

Physical activity is not only essential for healthy growth and development, it is also important to learning and getting good grades in school. Active kids are proven to get better grades, better sleep and have better attendance in school.

They also need to know who they can trust and how to stay safe.
Instead of concentrating on specific examples like “Don’t take candy from a stranger” or “Don’t get into a stranger’s car”, focus on principles that a child can use in lots of situations. For example, teach your child that they shouldn’t accept any type of gift from someone they don’t know, and they shouldn’t accept any ride from them either.
Here are a few things to teach your child in order to be safe:
