The Principal and all teachers in school are putting an effort to ensure students are safe while studying in the school. Here are a few steps to be safe while in school.First, be in class during school time. Students also like to make a visit to the toilet during periods and they are taking too much time there. A lot of criminal cases happen when a student is truant from schoolBe in places where there are people. When you go to the toilet, be with your friends. Third, stay at the canteen while waiting for the bus. Loitering outside the school will expose you to risks. Loners are the targets for bad influences or they may be they want to make fun of you. You can also be accused of a disciplinary case even if you do not commit it.After that, tell the disciplinary teachers if you see or know there are students who break the law. Do not interfere or punish them; you do not have the authority to take actions. Plus, you are endangering your safety as well as the bad students will take revenge on you.Make sure there is a teacher in charge of the class. There is a chance of student fights occurring in unattended classes. Tell the office after ten minutes the teacher does not show up.
