Health Office News from Nurse Judy

With the arrival of spring and with summer right around the corner, student safety is important to all of us. Many of our students are riding bikes, scooters, and skateboards to school each day. We encourage all of our riders to wear a helmet during these activities.
Helmets provide the best protection against head and brain injuries. There are safety standards that helmets must meet. These standards assure parents that the helmets are safe. Look for a helmet with safety stickers inside such as Snell or CPSC.

Check that the helmet fits your child properly. It should feel level, fit solidly on your child’s head, and be comfortable.
Replace a helmet after any accident. Generally, they are only good for one crash.

Have fun and stay safe!
