2020 Summit County Sheriff's Safety City
Dear Parents and Guardians, Your child, as an incoming kindergartener at Greenwood Early Learning Center, is invited to attend the Summit County Sheriff’s Safety City program this summer at Boettler Park in the City of Green. Safety City is an early childhood program designed to instruct safety concerns through the use of a miniature city, guest presenters and other resources. In a fun and nurturing environment, kindergarteners are engaged in numerous areas of safety including bus, traffic, stranger danger, fire, and home safety. A school bus ride and a tour of Greenwood ELC is always a highlight.
This is the thirty-fourth year the Sheriff's Office has provided Safety City to area schools. Veteran families of the program will notice a few changes, implemented due to COVID-19. However, the content, resources and learning objectives will remain intact. Social distancing and prevention guidelines from the Summit County Department of Health will be strictly adhered to.
This year, Safety City will be a four-day program conducted by the Summit County Sheriff's Office, with support from the Green Fire Department, the City of Green, guest presenters and Green Local Schools. Several DARE graduates will provide assistance.
There is no cost to participate. However, due to increasing budget cuts, monetary donations to help offset costs are always welcome and greatly appreciated. Checks can be made payable to "Summit County Sheriff's Office/Safety City.”
Sessions are limited to 30 participants and registration is on a first come first served basis. All sessions will take place at Boettler Park, 5300 Massillon Road, North Canton, OH.
Session #1: July 14 – July 17 10:00 am – 12:30 pm
Session #2: July 21 – July 24 10:00 am – 12:30 pm
Session #3: July 28 – July 31 10:00 am – 12:30 pm
