Lewisville ISD Fall Safety Reminder
Fall is here and with the cooler temperatures, we know our students participate in more outdoor activities – on and off our campuses. Due to this, we encourage you to talk with your child(ren) about safety and awareness when they are out and about in the community.
When children walk, ride their bikes, wait at bus stops, travel to activities, etc., please remind them to be aware of their surroundings and to travel in groups to ensure their safety from those they may not know. Additionally, remind them to report anything that causes them concern to a trusted adult.
As always, your positive support, involvement, and feedback are greatly appreciated. Have a great week!
