Children getting on a school busThere is no doubt that 2020 has been a year of uncertainties for school-aged children and their parents. With back-to-school dates right around the corner, many families still do not know whether their children will learn virtually from home, attend in-person classes, or a combination of the two. Because Fulton County schools are planning to resume in-person classes in September, it is important to remember to review school safety with your child.

August is Back to School Safety Month observed by the National Safety Council (NSC). This event is meant to spread education and awareness of how to best keep our young students safe during the school year. The following are some key issues to address with your child if they might be attending school this fall. In the unfortunate event that your child is injured, call us immediately to connect with an Atlanta personal injury attorney.
