Talking to Kids about Stranger Awareness
On Wednesday, Nov. 18th, the Sun Prairie Police Department issued a press release about an unidentified male subject approaching a Sun Prairie student on the way to school. The student got away safely, but the encounter serves as a good reminder to have ongoing conversations with kids about personal safety and stranger awareness.
It is our top priority to keep kids safe at school. We also encourage parents to have discussions about how to identify and handle potentially dangerous situations. Here are some resources to help guide those conversations with kids of various ages:
