It’s always a good idea to walk/ride with your children the first couple of days to a new school so they know the way and feel comfortable and safe. Review the standard rules of crosswalks, stoplights, stop signs, etc. If they ride a bike, make sure they wear a helmet, and obey the rules of the road.
School Zones & Speed Limits
With all of the school zones in Brookings, always be on the lookout for signs and signals. Slow down and be on the lookout. Remember, just because you see the kids doesn’t mean the kids see you. And don’t forget about the school crossing guards! Children look to them as their safety guides, so please be respectful and obey their signals too.
“The wheels on the bus go ‘round and ‘round…”- you remember this tune! It’s a catchy tune, and perhaps a good one to remember to give them the room and time they need to get your kids to school safely. Always stop for school busses when they’re loading or unloading children.
Are you and your family new to the area or thinking of moving here? Brookings, Volga, Aurora, and other surrounding areas in Eastern South Dakota are perfect places to consider making your permanent residence. Not to mention, when you come home at the end of the day, you’re coming home to your home.
