As October comes to an end, the biggest thing on everyone’s mind is Halloween, and most teens’ main concern is what costume to wear. Although the Halloween season is an exciting time for many, it’s important to take precautions. With kids running around at night, and everyone dressed up in costume, it’s extremely important to stay safe and to be alert.

RHS Social Studies teacher Ms. Monroe gives some advice on how to do this.

“One of the best things to do is to be always be aware of your surroundings,” Ms. Monroe said.

This tip is one that she’s carried with her from her police officer father. She also shares some advice of her own.

“If there’s something you see going on, get out of the way,” Ms. Monroe said. “Don’t be associated with kids who would get you into trouble, and don’t stay out super late. Surround yourself with good people and good things will happen.”

Freshman Ananya Rangarajan also offers some guidance for staying safe while out on Halloween night.

“If someone approaches you and you don’t know them, then walk away and don’t talk to them,” Rangarajan said.
