Back-to-School Safety Tips from Summer of Safety Campaign to be Featured Beginning August 24

While the official last day of summer is September 22, for families across the County the Fall season starts when local schools open on August 31.

That’s why the Public Information Office’s Summer of Safety awareness campaign’s back-to-school tips will be the featured topic the week of August 24.

There will be information to share with students about safe walking, biking and riding the bus to school. There are also reminders about safe driving (don’t forget to stop for school buses with the stop arm out and lights flashing), latchkey kids and required school inoculations. In addition, you will learn how to register, if you haven’t already, for “Alert Montgomery,” the County’s electronic emergency warning system.
