Put Safety on the Back-to-School List

Released: 8/31/2017
The CDC is not only tracking the Zika virus and getting the word out about how to prevent it.  In addition, the agency has posted helpful information on getting your children back to school safety, keeping them safe at school once the school has them in their custodial care and bringing them safely back home (see the information at the below link on teen driver safety).   The takeaway message is that parents, students, educators, and community members can ALL take action to keep children safe—in and away from school.
