Safety Town Virtual Learning
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we were fored to cancel Safety Town in 2020. Because we didn't children to miss out on forming good safety practices we created Safety Virtual Learning. For each of the below topics you will find a video lesson and a short, multiple choice quiz. Some lessons will include a supplemental video, an informational handout, a coloring sheet and/or a craft all of which will relate to that topic. The virtual experience is a great way to begin your child's safety journey and we hope the entire family will find value and entertainment in the subject matter. To reach our Safety Town Virtual Learning materials please follow this link... Safety Town Virtual Learning Program.
