Kindergarteners from Slocum Elementary School were recently taught important outdoor safety practices courtesy of Suffolk County Department of Health Services representative Robin Spencer during a recent assembly, “See and Be Seen.” Throughout Mrs. Spencer’s presentation, the students discussed multiple pedestrian and traffic scenarios, and were taught how to properly stay alert when walking around their own neighborhood. Additional skills reinforced included using a sidewalk when available, crossing the street only when safe to do so and wearing bright clothing to remain visible to drivers.
