BRONXVILLE, N.Y. – Representatives from the Bronxville Police Department stopped by the local elementary school on Thursday to offer safety tips and advice to students with Halloween right around the corner.
Police Officer Cheryl Jarosz and Sgt. William Carroll made a surprise visit to Bronxville Elementary School classrooms on Thursday, reminding students that while “costumes and candy are essential part of every Halloween festivity,” a little bit of preparation and knowledge can go a long way.
The police officials reminded first through fifth graders to walk with adults on Saturday while trick-or-treating, to carry flashlights and reflective devices and to look both ways when crossing the street. Most importantly, they advised students never to enter the house of a person they don’t know well.
During the visit, Jarosz and Carroll emphasized how to “Be3” on Halloween, which is “an elementary school program that promotes three expectations teachers have of students: be respectful, be responsible and be safe.”
