Let's get back to classic door to door trick-or-treating

Masks should not restrict vision and should be removed when crossing streets.

Halloween is Tuesday and costumed kids will spend the evening hunting and gathering their prized bounty of toothsome treats, a variety and abundance of candy to satisfy princesses and super-villains alike. Consider using reflective tape on costumes worn after dark.

Another potential danger comes from glowsticks and similar items. Small children should be monitored carefully, as the tubes are soft and chewing on them could easily break them.

Residents and trick-or-treaters are asked not to ring the doorbells of homes that do not have the lights turned on so as not to disturb such homeowners who may not be participating in the festivities. Frostbite can occur if dry ice touches the skin or mouth.

The Morton Grove Park District has announced a "Halloween Spooky Treats" event for children age 4 to 6 on October 28 from 10 a.m.to 11 a.m.

Tricks for treats? Only if those treats are safe for pets, since many Halloween sweets can be toxic to animals. Consider stickers, pencils or other party favors instead of candy.

Don't forget your furry friends: Chocolate may be a good treat for kids, but it is toxic for dogs.

"Families in Oakton's district are invited to celebrate Halloween in a safe environment", said Student Life Program Assistant Simi Khurana. For more information, contact the Nebraska Regional Poison Center by calling 1-800-222-1222.
