Back to School Safety
There will soon be more than 20,000 children going back to school in the Sothern Tier. That is over 20,000 reasons to remember safety precautions when the wheels on the bus start rolling ’round next week. Our Safe Kids Southern Tier New York coalition reminds parents/caregivers, drivers, and children to use extra caution during the morning and afternoon commutes as the school year begins.
Individuals must always follow school bus laws and stop when a school bus stops. Recognize when a bus is about to stop. Yellow flashing lights mean a bus is preparing to stop for the loading or unloading of children. Red flashing lights and an extended stop sign mean that children are getting on or off the bus, and all traffic must stop.
JCC International Overdose Awareness Day Event
Last week, Jordan and Sydney were able to attend the International Overdose Awareness Day Event held at Jamestown Community College’s Olean Campus. At this event, Sydney distributed information regarding medication safety, and Jordan provided overdose prevention information and health insurance information and recruited individuals to complete the online Narcan training. Thank you to JCC for inviting STHCS to attend this great event!
I hope everyone has a safe and Happy Labor Day weekend! In observance of the date, the STHCS office will be closed on Monday.
