    Dear Parents/Students,
     
        The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that a child's backpack weigh no more than 10 to 20 percent of the child's weight.  Kids are very susceptible to back pain with carrying this weight and with backpacks that are poorly made.
     
    SAFETY TIPS FOR BACKPACKS
    • Items should be worn - 2" above the waist
    • Both shoulder straps should be close to the body
    • Straps should be shortened so they can't get stepped on or caught in doors.
    • Reflective trim on the back and sides add visibility in the fall and winter months.
             Any questions or concerns, please call the Health Office at the above number.
    Happy New Year
      
    Mrs. M. Orlic, RN
