To All Ingleside Newsletter Subscribers:
Today is Halloween. Please be safe if out in the evening time and always look out for children in the neighborhood. The following tips are offered to our residents and parents alike:
· Be sure children are accompanied by an adult or responsible teenager while going door-to-door.
· Instruct children never to eat anything until they are home and the treats have been examined. Discard anything unwrapped.
· Check wrappers of commercial treats for signs of tampering.
· Call police if there are any suspicious treats.
· Make sure costumes fit and child can see well. Wear face make-up instead of a mask. Wear light colored clothing or reflective tape for visibility.
· Tell children to trick-or-treat in their own neighborhoods, on well-lit streets.
· If children are going to be out after dark, make sure they carry a flashlight.
· Teach children to use the sidewalks. If there are no sidewalks, walk on the left side facing cars. Look both ways before crossing the street.
· Know which friends your children will be with and which route they are taking.
· Leave your porch light on so children will know it’s okay to visit your home.
Wishing everyone a Happy and SAFE Halloween!
