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.
We will accept children ages 4.5 to 6-years old who will be entering Kindergarten in the 2018-2019 school year. Please see the Student Registration Form below for complete instructions.
