Now that the city and state have had a few days to defrost, the kids are finally back to school. Was it a long three weeks stuck in the house with the little ones? While you might be ready to get back to your routine and schedule, have you taken all of the necessary precautions to ensure your child will be safe when they return to school? If your kids walk to a school bus stop in order to get to school, you might want to check the stop and their route to make sure it is cleared of any snow or ice. The last thing you need right now is a trip to the emergency room with a broken arm or leg due to a slip and fall on the ice. Maybe you drive the carpool from your neighborhood to your child’s school. Has the parking lot of the school been cleared of ice and snow to allow you to pull up to the door to drop of the kids?
