April Marks National Backpack Safety Month

To provide awareness of backpack safety, April has been declared National Backpack Safety Month. Research shows that a majority of students carry more than the recommended weight levels in their backpacks and sustaining significant injury that may last a lifetime. The Backpack Safety program educates students, parents and teachers about the health issues of backpacks and related injuries, and teaches children how they should carry backpacks correctly.
