Ways to Stay Alert

• Walk in groups to and from school. Avoid walking alone even during the day time.
• Don’t approach strangers or vehicles that you are not familiar with and keep your distance.
• If approached by someone suspicious, yell, scream to get someone’s attention.
• Run from the stranger and don’t look back. Get away as fast as you can and if possible, run into an open business.
