Join the Hocking College Police Department, Athens County Sheriff’s Office, fire fighters, educators and other public service workers for a fun course that focuses on teaching children safe practices both at school and home.

The curriculum includes: bicycle safety, pedestrian safety, fire safety, playground safety, poison control, snake and animal safety, stranger danger and what to do if they find a gun or another weapon. The children are instructed and practice how to cross the street safely. Daily speakers and games lead up to a Thursday graduation ceremony.

A snack is provided daily. If your child has special dietary restrictions you may choose to send a snack with your child. The week will be very active so children should wear comfortable athletic shoes – no flip flops! All children must be potty-trained.
