Safety Town

When school begins this fall, your child will encounter many hazardous situations for the first time.  For that reason, the Vermilion Fraternal Order of Police is sponsoring SAFETY TOWN again this summer.  SAFETY TOWN is a ten-day class in safety education open to all children who will be attending kindergarten in September.  Under guidance, they practice and experience “real life” situations before being confronted with the situation in their life.  Instruction includes pedestrian, motorist, bus, fire railroad crossing, bicycle, toy, playground, drug, general home safety, and a field trip to the police station.  SAFETY TOWN is a miniature town built to the scale of a small child and has buildings, streets, sidewalks, crosswalks, vehicles, traffic signs, and a traffic light.  In the small town, the children practice what they learn in our classrooms.

We sincerely hope you will take advantage of the opportunity for your child to participate in this program to help make the first steps into the school years safe ones.  Should you have any further questions, please contact Katie at 967-6116.
