Albany Police stress to the community these tips to stay safe:
NEVER WALK ALONE Walk with an adult family member, an older student or with a group of students.
DO NOT TALK TO STRANGERS If approached by a stranger RUN immediately to the nearest store or crossing guard and tell an adult about it.
COME TO SCHOOL ON TIME Sometimes being late is unavoidable. Parents and guardians, on those occasions please escort your children into the school building and be certain of their safe arrival.
WALK AGAINST TRAFFIC SO YOU CANNOT BE FOLLOWED It takes time for a driver to turn around and it will give you a head start.
TELL SOMEONE IMMEDIATELY If you have had something happen to you, have had an experience that made you feel uncomfortable or scared, or if you have information, tell school officials or your parents immediately.
