Child Safety Seats - California Law (Effective 01/01/2012):

- Children under the age of 8 must be secured in a car seat or booster seat in the back seat. 

- Children under the age of 8 who are 4' 9" or taller may be secured by a safety belt in the back seat.

- Children who are 8 years and over shall be properly secured in an appropriate child passenger restraint system or safety belt. 

- Passengers who are 16 years of age and over are subject to California's Mandatory Seat Belt law.

- Buckling up is the single most effective thing you can do to protect yourself in a crash.

- Seat belts are the best defense against impaired, aggressive, and distracted drivers.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO HAVE YOUR CHILD’S CAR SEAT HERE ON DAYS WHEN THEY HAVE A FIELD TRIP.

California has adopted new Common Core Standards for the education of your children.
