Ministry Of Education Anti-Bullying Online Reporting Tool
Date September 3, 2014

On June 24, the Ministry of Education introduced a way in which students can anonymously report a bullying incident. This is in response to feedback released earlier in the school year with details described in "Saskatchewan's Action Plan to Address Bullying and Cyberbullying".

As a result, the Ministry created an anti-bullying online reprting tool.

Back to School Safety!
Date August 11, 2014

It's back to school time!

As school doors open, traffic gets a little heavier on our streets. People are back from holidays, school buses will be on regular routes, and more people are walking, cycling or driving to school.

To help with the transition and share the roads safely, listed below are safety tips. Help everyone stay safe this school year!

1) Observe School Zone Speeds

Although you should always obey posted speed limits, it is especially important during the school year. Children crossing the road on their way to and from school can easily get distracted and step into harm's way. Slowing down and being vigilant is crucial to keeping kids safe. Children are often out throughout the day at recess, lunch, and for certain classes, so it's important to drive slowly throughout the day.

2) Obey the Crossing Guard

A crossing guard is there to keep children safe. please follow his/her direction to stop. There might be a child still crossing the street that you can't see.

3) Watch for Darting Children

Kids are small and easily distracted, and for drivers, this can create dangerous situations on the roads. Be vigilant and alert behind the wheel. You never know when a small child might step out from between parked cars or off a sidewalk. Your fast reflexes might be needed to prevent an accident.

4) School Buses

Most mishaps take place outside the bus. Make sure children don't arrive too early at the bus stop where they can wander or get into mischief. Make sure children wait well away from the road and stay back until the school bus makes a full stop and the doors open. Explain that they must walk at least three metres (10 feet) away when crossing in front of the bus so the driver can see them. When driving your car near a school bus please note that extra caution is needed. You shouldn't pass a school bus when the signal lights are flashing (as children are often crossing the road at that time), and drive slowly as a general precaution.

Prevention is the key to safety. With education and awareness, all children should be able to get safely to school and home again. Take the time to share these valuable rules and tips with your children.
