    Walk like a Penguin

    Our School and Building Engineers and their staff work tirelessly to keep employees and students safe when walking on district property.  However, as we all know, winter weather in Buffalo is persistent and changeable.  As such, please review the following helpful hints: 


    1. Wear Proper Footwear: wear shoes/boots with heavy treading and a flat bottom

    2. Wear items that help you see and be seen: wear sunglasses so you can see when the sun is reflecting off the snow

    3. Plan ahead: walk consciously on sidewalks and parking lots in case of ice.  Look up to see where the next icy spots are.

    4. Listen: avoid listening to music or talking on the phone while walking in icy or snowy conditions.

    5. Anticipate ice: What appears to be wet pavement may be black ice, so approach with caution.

    6. Take steps slowly: when walking up/down stairs and ramps, take slow and deliberate steps. 

    7. Keep your hands free: wear gloves and when possible keep your hands out of your pockets to have your arms help with your

    balance and protection should your slip.
