6 Back to School Safety Tips


6 Back to School Safety Tips

1. We all know how often kids get sick once school starts, add a thermometer and children’s tylenol/advil to your “back to school” shopping list. An official fever is anything above 100.4 F. The average school-aged child gets sick with “the cold” approximately 5-6 times per year. We at Family Tree Primary Care are here for you at those unfortunate but inevitable times when your child does come down with something. Feel free to text, call or email us at the onset of any illness, day or night for just $25 a month.

2. Help prevent viruses in the first place by sending your child to school with hand sanitizer attached to their backpack and in their lunchbox.

3. Review hand hygiene with your children. Encourage hand washing after using the bathroom and before eating. Make sure they can demonstrate this: www.cdc.gov/Features/HandWashing/ Also, remind them to keep their hands, nails, and pencils out of their mouths.

4. Review protocol for strangers with your child (www.anxioustoddlers.com) and consider getting involved in your child’s classroom or the school PTA this year.

5. Let your child know about physical and online bullying. Withdrawal or sudden changes in grades may indicate a problem. Make sure your children know that they can always talk to you and try to build them up every day. Encouragement, like bathing, needs to happen daily.

6. For your teenagers please make sure they buckle up and discourage texting and driving. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens. Six teens ages 16 to 19 die every day from motor vehicle injuries. Please have your loved ones buckle up and consider the many options for disabling texting while driving.
