Northwest Missouri is known for its frequently difficult winter weather. As your student returns to campus, please encourage them to pay attention to the weather and follow some common safety tips:

  • Always buckle up
  • Drive with your headlights on
  • Slow down! Give yourself extra time to drive to your destination, or consider postponing
  • Wear boots or flexible overshoes with grip soles and take short-to-medium steps in icy areas
  • Place your full attention on walking while on ice; don’t become distracted digging in your pockets or bags
