On your own feet in the self-employment

"School has begun", is to read on the bright yellow straps near the schools, in addition to the request to drive slowly. The municipalities are installing these large-format traffic watch notices on the first day of the new school year. On the higher traffic volume, more buses, more cyclists, more pedestrians this day are also clearly visible to the other road users. The very tiny ones, in whom the satchel is almost bigger than the child, the new first graders, come to the crowd of school only in the course of the week. The safety of all students is now particularly in focus - even with the police.

In the first two weeks of school, school routes and the dangerous places in front of the schools are consistently monitored, according to the deputy district police officer, Dressler. In the morning, at the beginning of school, and at lunchtime, at the end of morning lessons, pedestrians and bicycles are observed, possibly checking the wheels. Particular attention is paid to abnormalities when parents bring the children to school by car or pick them up from there. The drivers did not necessarily choose the safe route, according to Roller. Dangerous maneuvering and excessive speed would have been more of a concern in the past. In these cases, discussions would be conducted, errors pointed out, and optimal behavior acted upon; Sanctions would be in the background. Every now and then parents would have to be convinced that the safety aspects are important, especially in these areas. "Parents are the focus, because they have a role model function," says Dressler. Also, parents should trust and trust their children with the well-known and well-known school route, and support the police and the schools in traffic education: "If the parents do not support us, we have a hard time."

The principals of the elementary schools in the area around Reutlingen are in agreement with each other. At the parents' evenings at the beginning of the school year, the school safety was discussed, the parents pointed to the neuralgic points around the school grounds and the strict stopping bans. Traffic education is compulsory in all classes. Also, the safety vest, which every child receives at enrollment, provides some protection and should be used regularly.

Martin, Rector of the Joseph Christian Community School, points out the parents' letter, which will be given to schoolchildren on the first day of school. In it, the aspect school safety is the first point, also with the pointer to the coming dark season. That parents should bring their child only in exceptional cases by car, is also listed here. Martin says: "School also means that the child goes to school at a reasonable distance on foot." The way to school should be practiced beforehand. The bus children of the entrance classes would be accompanied in the first days of the class teachers to the bus. In addition, every year the school organizes a bus safety training with the local bus company and the police in the first weeks of school, during which the correct behavior at the bus stop and on the bus is trained.

Also in Bad Buchau, such a coach training is part of the beginning of the school for the new first and fifth graders. With a special feature in terms of safety for students: It has pupils' guides. At least 20, according to Rector Elisabeth, are trained; two have daily service at the crosswalk in front of the school. With high visibility vest and trowel they ensure a safe crossing of the road before and after class. Maintained by a teacher, they also go to classes to introduce themselves and their task. A school route plan is given to the parents of the first classes at the entrance evening; Information on traffic safety can be found on the homepage of the school.

Bus coaching for the first graders is also available at the Michel Buck Community School, according to Rector Markus. Again, parents should be warned not to park at the bus stop or park their car in the second row to avoid dangerous situations for the students.

In Unlingen, says Rector Andrea, the class teachers travel together with the children at the beginning. And in October, a bicycle action day will be organized at the Danube Buses School for all elementary school students. They practiced safety at various stations and by bike; the bike brought is checked.

A school trip on foot or - after the cycling test in the fourth grade - covered by bicycle, offers the children a way to communicate with each other. For Rector Silvia, this is an unmissable aspect that belongs to childhood: "This is often lost." And she adds: "The children are growing in their jobs."
