Here are some safety tips for that night and the days of sugary goodness that follow!
- Children should always go out trick-or-treating accompanied by a responsible adult.
- Some towns set a curfew for trick-or-treating which makes it easier for people to know when they can expect no more visitors.
- Plan a safe route so parents know where their older kids will be at all times. Set a time for their return home. Make sure that they have a cell phone.
- Instruct your children not to eat any treats until they bring them home to be examined by you. This way you can check for any problem candy and get the pick of the best stuff!
- Instruct your child to never go into the home of a stranger or get into their car.
- Make sure your child carries a flashlight, glow stick or has reflective tape on their costume to make them more visible to cars.
- Let them know that they should stay together as a group if going out to Trick-or-Treating without an adult.
Also this is a reminder to not eat or hand out candy on the school bus. It can be dangerous and distracting! We look forward to seeing everyone in costumes this Monday! If you are interested in more Halloween safety tips or facts, click on the title and follow the link.
