Safety Town

SAFETY TOWN 2019

SPONSORED BY THE OLMSTED EARLY CHILDHOOD PTA

For children starting Kindergarten in the fall of 2019.

Safety Town is a child accident prevention program for incoming kindergartners. It is a program that introduces safety awareness and preventative procedures to the children. Children practice real life situations before being confronted with situations on their own. Safety Town is the foundation of safety education.

Children who attend will practice safety “out on the town” in a miniaturized city layout designed to teach children safety near roads, railroad crossings, while on their bikes or walking in their neighborhood. Videos, songs and lessons with visits from local Police, Fire and Bus Departments as well as field trips to Police and Fire Departments, all help your child enjoy and understand what he or she is learning.

Safety Town is held at FALLS-LENOX PRIMARY SCHOOL during June. Each Session is 5 days long, which includes graduation on Friday.  Due to school getting out later in June this year, we will only be having two sessions this summer. There will, however, be two evening classes to make up for there being one less session.

You will be required to arrive 15 minutes prior to class start time and stay a short time after the class ends to help with set up and clean up. There will be a training session on Sunday June 16  from 4:00-5:00pm that is mandatory for all volunteers to attend. This training session will be held at the OF fire Station at 9274 Columbia Road.
