Winter Holidays – Roxbury Review
Prevent Falls This Winter

When the rain and snow starts to fall, so do people. Protect yourself from a life-changing injury this winter with these safety tips:

1. Choose the right shoe. Shoes and boots need to fit properly and have soles with good traction. Snow boots or hiking boots will provide the best protection for the worst type of weather.

2. Leave early. Falls are more likely to happen when you’re in a rush. Allow yourself plenty of time to get to where you’re going.

3. Walk like a penguin. Take short steps and walk as flat-footed as possible on icy or slippery ground.

4. Keep your hands free. You’ll need them to help you balance, so avoid carrying heavy loads and keep those hands out of your pockets.

5. Remove snow and ice from walkways frequently. Don’t wait for it to melt. That could take awhile. Apply ice melt and ask for help if you need it.

6. Keep the lights on. If you have exterior lights on your home, use them to help see where you’re walking at night.

7. Advocate for your safety. If the entrances or sidewalks do not look safe outside of a business or a local venue, speak up and let someone know.

We are asking parents to make sure you are available by phone during the school day, or designate some one to be "on call", sort of speak, for your child. If you are called to come pick up your child for an illness, we ask that you promptly do so for the safety of your child and others.
