National Teen Safe Driver Week

Please take a brief survey by clicking

National Teen Driver Safety Week is conducted annually during the third week of October in the United States.  So this week the Driver’s Education Classes and FCCLA are creating an awareness campaign because motor vehicle crashes remain the primary cause of death for adolescents. 

Each year, more than 5,000 teens are killed in motor vehicle crashes. Teen drivers (ages 16 to 19) are involved in fatal crashes at four times the rate of adult drivers (ages 25 to 69).  Think about these messages each day this week:

  • Put on your seat belt and make sure all your passengers buckle up, too.  Two-thirds of teens killed in crashes were not wearing seat belts.   
  • Do not take your focus off the road.  Avoid distracted driving by not talking on cellphones or sending text messages. Phones should be turned off when driving so you will not be tempted to make calls or answer the phone. For emergency use, pull off the road before answering or texting.
  • Never try to fit more people in the car than you have seat belts for them to use. This triples the risk of a fatal crash with a teen driver at the wheel.
  • One in five ninth through 11th graders has been involved in at least one crash as a passenger in the past year.

Morning News
Important Info for Parents
  • Safety for All
    To keep our students safe while at school, the Chester County School District holds several types of emergency practice drills throughout the year.  These drills—fire, tornado, earthquake, lockdown and others—are done periodically and unannounced so that students and staff may practice our safety procedures.

    We ask that parents/guardians talk with their children at home, reminding them that during any type of drill, a student should:
    1. Stay calm and quiet
    2. Follow school staff directions
    3. Not open outside school doors or classroom doors for visitors
    A “Schools Connect” telephone call will also be made repeating this message to ensure parents have the opportunity to talk with students about school safety training before the drills take place.
    Calls will not be made prior to each drill in order to ensure a realistic gauge of readiness.

    As always the Chester County School District is working hard to provide a safe and secure learning environment for each and every student.  Please note that during any type of drill, visitors are not allowed into the building and sign-outs are postponed until the drill is complete.  Thank you for your help in preparing students for these drills and for encouraging them to take these practice sessions seriously. ‚Äč
