Safe Kids Week Promotion for Schools 2018

Safe Kids Week is June 4th-8th, 2018 

This year’s theme focuses on concussions at home, at play and on the road:

  • Help reduce the likelihood of head injury, like concussions, during sports, recreation and unstructured play by encouraging your child to use correctly fitting protective equipment and to follow safety rules. 
  • Teach children about wearing the right helmet for the activity they are doing. For example: bike helmets can be used for cycling, in-line skating and scootering, but skateboarding helmets should be used for skateboarding as they cover the back of the head better. 
  • Recognize the signs and symptoms of a concussion, which can happen even without a direct hit to the head and without losing consciousness. If your child does have signs of concussion, remove them from the activity and seek medical care.
  • Be sure to inform your school Principal if your child sustains a concussion, either on or off school property.
