Halloween Safety

Donna Botelho, Reporter

As the month of October comes to a close, the tradition everyone loves is coming closer and closer. But there are a few precautions that we would love for you to take to ensure your safety.

First of all, try to keep some type of reflective or bright color on you, Whether it be your bag or some light color on your costume it will help you be more seen on the road to cars and such, ensuring your safety as according to WPST, Halloween is one of the top 3 holidays for accidents.

Secondly,  never go into a strangers house no matter what without friends or parents. Some people might not be as nice if you’re alone and Halloween might just be an opportunity for some people. As stupid as it may sound, searching up for criminal records in your area might not be such a bad idea.

Lastly, If you are carrying any sort of prop whatsoever (Like a pitch fork, knife or scythe), make sure the tip is flexible and not sharp so no injury can occur if fallen on or used against someone. They are just for show.

Have a nice and safe Halloween from us here at KHS!
