2019 Safety Town
June 17-21 • 9 - 11:30 a.m. • Hocking College Campus
Join Hocking College Police Department, Athens County Sheriffs Office, fire fighters, educators and other public service workers for a fun course that focuses on teaching children safe practices both at school and home. Children ages 4 - 6 are invited to participate in the program. Participation fee is $10 for the four days. Safety Town is held on Hocking College Nelsonville campus.
The curriculum includes: bicycle safety, pedestrian safety, fire safety, playground safety, poison control, snake and animal safety, stranger danger and what to do if they find a gun or another weapon. The children are instructed and practice how to cross the street safely. Daily speakers and games lead up to a Thursday graduation ceremony.
A snack is provided daily. If your child has special dietary restrictions, you may choose to send a snack with your child. The week will be very active, so children should wear comfortable athletic shoes — no flip flops! Also, all children must be potty-trained.
