Lock Up Safety for Students!

I was just talking to my husband about all the extra things we have to buy for my son this year. He will be going into middle school and will need a lock.

My best advice for keeping items safe is to not take valuable items to school! I know it’s hard to keep all those fun items at home, especially when kids like my son will want to play his iPod on the bus, but it’s too easy to lose at school. Don’t forget to actually lock up your stuff and don’t give friends your combination!

Check out Master Lock for some great tips and new products!! They are even on Facebook -http://www.facebook.com/masterlock.

    heck, i wasnt even allowed to bring my favorite stuffed animal to kindergarten because my mom said i would lose it, forget something monetarily valuable. kids dare eachother to,do stupid things and steal, they can just take it from backpack

  15. Kids these days have a ton of expensive electronics such as ipods, iphones, and handheld gaming devices… They really shouldn’t bring that stuff to school, but if they do then at least they should keep it locked up in a safe place.
