Safety Town Field Trip

Safety Town is run by the Huntington Police Department. It is designed to teach 2nd grade students about emergency calls and traffic and pedestrian safety. Because it is designed for 2nd graders, we need to limit sign ups to 7-8-9 year olds. Older kids will be too big drive the cars. Younger kids may not have the attention span for the classroom portion. This is the police department's stipulation! They've also asked that we limit the number of students to 20 and the number of adults to three. Because of this, you may need to send your child with another family or plan to drop-off/pick-up.

Our trip to Safety Town is scheduled for Tuesday, April 13th. We'll be there from 9am until 1pm. The morning will be spent in the classroom. After lunch, the kids will spend about an hour in the miniature town driving and practicing pedestrian safety. The cost is $1 per student. Everyone should bring a packed lunch.

We will have a sign-up sheet at co-op on Tuesday, March 31st.
