Stay Alert While School is Out for Summer
Help Keep Children Safe while they Enjoy Summer

            Reeseville WI— School’s out for summer. That means more children playing, riding bikes, running through the neighborhood, and possibly playing sports on sidewalks and streets.

            The Postal Service is asking moms and dads to remind children about taking extra precautions to avoid accidents around mailboxes and postal vehicles.        “Summer months bring more than heat and humidity, they also bring kids outside to play,” said Reeseville Postmaster Terri Wolff “While this is the best time of year to be outdoors, a child can very easily ride a bike or dart into the path of a postal vehicle.”

            There are several precautions children can take to avoid accidents. First, never approach a postal vehicle when a letter carrier is delivering the mail. Second, wait for the mail to be delivered before retrieving it from the mailbox. Third, children should never take mail directly from a letter carrier that is delivering mail from inside a vehicle.

            “If children approach a vehicle, the letter carrier will get out and ask the children to move away,” added Wolff  “The carrier will deliver the mail directly to the box.”

            Children should also limit the use of cell phones and other portable devices as well as pay attention to local street signs and observe the rules of the road when riding a bicycle. Observing these tips will help keep children safe during the busy days of summer.       
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.

                A self-supporting government enterprise, the U.S. Postal Service is the only delivery service that reaches every address in the nation: 152 million residences, businesses and Post Office Boxes. The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations. With more than 31,000 retail locations and the most frequently visited website in the federal government, usps.com, the Postal Service has annual revenue of more than $65 billion and delivers nearly 40 percent of the world's mail. If it were a private-sector company, the U.S. Postal Service would rank 42nd in the 2012 Fortune 500. The Postal Service has been named the Most Trusted Government Agency for seven years and the fourth Most Trusted Business in the nation by the Ponemon Institute.

The Summer Reading Program

We are having a super summer highlighting local and fictional superheroes.   So far we’ve had hot dogs at the fire station, gone through superhero training, received super names and costumes, done a rescue exercise and built our villains’ lairs.  On August 6th those that have finished the program are invited to an ice cream social to receive their prizes.  The grand prize this year is a zoo pass for the whole family. Kids must complete their reading logs and be present to win.
