VLP Safety Tips:

Do Not Open The Door For Solicitors

Officer Glentzer shares the following valuable information regarding

safety: • DO NOT OPEN your DOOR for solicitors. As a community we

should not encourage them by opening our doors. If a solicitor refuses to

get off your property, please call 911 immediately to report them.

• Promply collect your packages when they are delivered, as thieves are

more than ready to take parcels left on doorsteps.

• When shopping or stopping at the bank, be aware of your surroundings

and ALWAYS lock your car.

Home safety tips: • Activate your alarm when leaving

• Lock all windows and doors before leaving

• Place a lock on your backyard gate so would be burglars do not have

access to your backyard • Check into updating and upgrading your alarm

system and installing glass break sensors and test system for accuracy

• Place alarm signs/stickers in visible places

• Make sure each of your vehicles has a VLP sticker displayed (stickers can

be obtained at monthly Board meetings)

• Remove all valuables and always lock vehicles

• Get to know your neighbors and become familiar with their vehicles -

notice cars that seem suspicious

• Call 713-221-6000 with non-emergency issues and 911 with emergencies

• Let our very own Deputy Glentzer (713-471-1882) know if you will be

away so he can keep an eye on your home

To obtain an alarm permit, please contact Harris County Alarm Detail at

713-755-4600 or visit www.hcso.hctx.net.

Garden Tips

For August

• Time now to make plans for fall landscaping projects.

• Clean up flowerbeds of fallen foliage, yellowed leaves

and dead wood. Light green leaves may signify lack of

iron (chlorosis). Correct with iron cheleates.

• Cut off old dead foliage on irises. Scratch in a little

bone meal around the roots.

• Prune roses to reshape and groom plants for fall

growth.

• Wait until November to plant petunias and pansies.

• Chinch bug damage is obvious now. You will have

areas of thin and/or dead turf where they weren’t

brought under control. There is a new generation going

now. This batch causes the most damage. Use Dursban

to stop the damage.

• Until the weather gets back to the 80’s, St. Augustine

grass grows slowly. If you fill in with sod, don’t expect a

fast turnaround. The sod may look like it’s not growing

while it puts down roots. You will need to water the

new sod often and deeply to get it started but this also

creates a disease environment. Water early so the sun

can dry the turf.

• Now is a good time to work new beds. Till them up,

add organic material, mix it in, then let them cure for

a month or so. Add in any amendments like micronutrients.

Keep the beds moist so the microorganisms

have a favorable environment.

HOW PARENTS CAN PREPARE

FOR BACK TO SCHOOL TIME

By: Janelle Cox

Back to school time is always a big transition, not only for children but

for parents.

While children are filled with excitement and first-day jitters, parents are

filled with thoughts of “Am I prepared enough?” To help eliminate these

thoughts and help you and your child prepare for the new school year,

all you need is a little organization and forethought. Here are 10 back

to school tips to kick-start the new year and get you prepared for a fresh

start.

1. Get back into your sleep routine. To help eradicate those stressful

school mornings, set up a regular bedtime and morning time routine to

help prepare your child for school. Begin your usual school sleep routine

about a week or so before school starts.

2. Shop for school supplies together. To get your child excited about

starting a new grade, shop for supplies together. Allow them to pick out

their own backpack, lunchbox, etc. This is a great way to give them a little

bit of responsibility too!

3. Re-establish school routines. Have your child practice getting back

into the rhythm of their daily school routine. You can do this by having

them wake up at the same time every day and eat around the same time

they would at school. About a week or so before school starts, plan a

few outside activities where your child will have to leave and come home

around the same time they would if they were in school. This will help

them be rested and ready for the big day.

4. Set up a homework station. Sit down with your child and together

designate a time and place where he can do his homework each day. This

can be somewhere quiet like in the den or even in the kitchen while you

are preparing dinner. Make sure to choose a time where you are available

in case your child needs your help.

5. Prepare for the unexpected. Working parents know that it can be

difficult to find a sitter when your child is sick. Before school even begins,

it’s a good idea to have a sitter already lined up in case you get that phone

call home from the nurse saying your child is ill.

6. Make an after-school game plan. Make a plan for where your child will

go after school lets out for the day. Depending upon the age of your child,

figure out if they will go to a neighbor’s house, an afterschool program

or be allowed to stay home by themselves. This will help eliminate any

confusion during the first few weeks.

7. Turn off the TV and video games. For a lot of children summertime is

filled with endless video games and TV programs. Children are usually

in shock when they begin school and realize that six hours of their day

is going to spent learning and not playing games and watching TV. Ease

your child into the learning process by turning off the electrics and

encouraging them to read or play quietly.

8. Review school material and information. For most parents, schools

send home a packet with a ton of information regarding their child’s

new teacher, important dates to remember, emergency forms and

transportation routines. Make sure that you read through this information

carefully and mark down all important dates on your calendar.

9. Get organized. The best way to prepare for back to school time is to

be organized. With school comes a massive amount of paperwork,

which can consume your household. Designate a spot in your house

for homework, permission slips and any other school-related papers.

This can help eliminate all of that paper clutter and make your life less

stressful.

10. Get your child’s yearly checkup. School and germs go hand in hand,

so it’s best to get your child’s yearly checkup before school even starts.

Get any required vaccinations and ask your pediatrician the best ways

your child can stay healthy throughout the school year.

Through preparation and organization, you can ensure that your child

will have a smooth transition to the start of the new school year. By doing

so, you and your child can enjoy the rest of your summer break.
