The Connection

October 2016

October is here and fall weather is upon us. It’s time to go apple picking and to visit the pumpkin patch. School is back in session, and dance classes have begun. Enjoy the sights and sounds of autumn.
Happy Halloween!

Halloween Safety Tips

Before sending children out for a night of fun, take a moment to consider these basic safety precautions:

  • Make sure older children take friends and stay together while trick-or-treating.
  • Never send younger children out alone – they should be with a parent, guardian, or another trusted adult.
  • Always walk younger children to the door to receive treats.
  • Don’t let children enter a home unless you are with them.
  • Be sure children do not approach any vehicle, occupied or not, unless you are with them.
