Back to School Safety: Getting to School – Carpooling

This week, we are giving a brief overview of various transportation options as well as how to stay safe in each situation.


In many cases, you can arrange a carpool with other parents to ensure that your kids get to school quickly and safely. Although carpooling is one of the most secure methods of transportation, it’s still essential that you prepare your child for potential danger.

For the most part, you want to make sure that your little one verifies the driver of the car before getting in. Since many vehicles look alike, it can be easy to mistake one for the other and wind up in the wrong car. Also, for added security, it’s best to set up a schedule beforehand. This way, your child knows who should be picking him or her up at any time. Thus, if someone else tries to drive your little one, he or she will know to avoid the situation and wait for the approved driver instead.
