York County's "Safety Town" Live Webinar Program Registration Begins May 24
Registration for the 27th session of York County’s award-winning “Safety Town” program that teaches pre-kindergartners various aspects of life safety begins Monday, May 24, for York County residents and Tuesday, June 1, for residents of other localities. Safety Town is open to children entering Kindergarten in the fall. The resident fee is $20 and the non-resident fee is $30.
This year’s program has been modified as a Live Webinar event being held July 12-15 from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Children can enjoy three safety lessons taught live each day in the webinar format and two additional lessons will be provided through video and supplemental resources. The webinar will include guest speakers, real-life props, and an instructive puppet show!
A favorite part of every Safety Town is the mini-town set up inside York Middle School with traffic signs, roadways, and tricycles for teaching traffic and pedestrian safety. After registration, each child may choose a time slot to “ride on the town,” Monday through Thursday afternoon or during the day Friday the middle school.
All participants will receive a safety town kit that includes a backpack, helmet, t-shirt, and daily activity packets to use the week of safety town.
Our programs will be modified to meet State Executive Orders, County Guidelines, and CDC recommendations. As the COVID-19 evolves, we will continue to provide updates on our programs and make necessary adjustments based on the latest recommendations.
