Safety Week Sept 26-30 Information

26 Sep

Throughout this week, our school will be involved in safety practices and drills. This will include a fire drill, a lockdown drill, a hold and secure drill as well as daily announcements and conversations in classrooms. A key safety focus for outside the school is Bike helmets.   Do you know the law in Ontario:

Children and youth

Bicycle helmet

By law, every cyclist under age 18 must wear an approved helmet.

Riders under 16 years old: a parent or guardian must make sure their child wears a helmet.

Adults

Helmets are not compulsory for adults over 18; but a helmet can greatly reduce the risk of permanent injury or death if you fall or collide. It is strongly recommended that all riders wear helmets.
