Safety Town Prepares Children Entering Kindergarten

Westlake Safety Town continues its 45+ year tradition of educating our children entering kindergarten about traffic and school safety issues. Classes are offered in sessions throughout June and July.

Spearheaded by the Safety Town Director and a Community Service Officer (and with the help of an energetic team of student volunteers), Safety Town helps better prepare hundreds of pre-kindergarten children for the school experience. The program includes street-crossing safety, school bus procedures, and stranger caution. The children visit the fire and police stations for tours and end the session with a certificate at the graduation ceremony.

Student Registration

This year we are launching an online registration option as noted in the kindergarten packets. Registration will continue until all classes are full.  Please see the Student Registration Form below for complete instructions.

In-person registration
In-person registration for Westlake residents ONLY will be held on Wednesday May 2, 2018 from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. at Safety Town. After this date, if a parent or guardian prefers to register in person, please go to the Recreation Center, not the Police Station.

Online registration
Online registration for ALL is available at noon on Thursday May 3, 2018 and is the preferred method of registration. We will use the Recreation Department's RecTrac system. An account for RecTrac will be required to register for Safety Town.
