Many Kennedy students walk from home to school and from school to home. A large amount of
people talk about staying safe on the roads with the ice, but there is not as much of a need with
salt littered on them to prevent ice from forming. However, people think less often about the
sidewalks.

Sidewalks can be dangerous when snow covers them. You may never know if ice may be
lurking under the snow until it is too late. You walk over without thinking, and soon after, slip.

Even when snow does not cover the sidewalks, ice can be hard to see. For people walking not
only to home and to school, but anywhere in this icy weather, watch your feet.

To keep yourself safe, there are many options you can take.

First, you can wear shoes or boots with good traction. It can prevent some slipping, but does not
always work.

Next, you need to make sure not to go too fast. You may have somewhere to be, but it is better
to be safe than sliding.

Finally, make sure to watch where you go, and carefully. Doing so can prevent many accidents
that would be missed if not paying attention.

For those who attend school, by the time you are dismissed, sometimes sidewalks cannot have
been taken well care of. Even if the owners had shovelled their sidewalk, if it had snowed at all
since, it would be right back to how it used to be. With the rising and falling of temperatures
throughout the day, the snow can melt and freeze again, creating ice.

If you want to help prevent any accidents, try putting some salt on your sidewalks to melt any
ice, and if you want, you can add sand to help keep traction.
