Car Seat Appointments
With the amended car seat law that went into effect in January for the state of Florida, child safety seat awareness is high right now. To take advantage of this, we are asking parents the following questions to help them think concretely about their child’s safety in their vehicle.
- Are you sure your child's car seat is installed correctly? 4 of out 5 are not.
- Do you know when it’s safe to switch from rear-facing to forward-facing?
- Do you know when to move your child out of a car seat and how to choose a booster seat?
- Are there any recalls that affect your child’s seat?
Our Certified Car Seat Technicians can help ask and then answer these questions, with a personal appointments available in Key West, Marathon, or Tavernier. Please help us spread the word about the appointments, especially the dates in Marathon and Tavernier, since we are only available there occasionally.
Car Seat Appointment Flyer
Student council members of Stanley Switlik worked very hard this week making encouraging signs and posters for the Wounded Warriors Annual Bike Ride. Students in Student council lined up along US 1 to cheer and welcome the bike riders as they rode by. They were cheering “USA USA USA!” The Wounded Warriors responded by yelling along with the students and waving.
Thank you FKEC!
Stanley Switlik Principal Brett Unke and Dean Of students Christina Rodriguez thank TJ Patterson from The Florida Keys Electric Coop for donating 100 shoulder bags used in the fifth grade as an organizational tote to help students carry books and supplies as they switch to different classes throughout the day.
