Safety City taking applications

Staff report

Safety City, a safety education program designed to teach pre-kindergartners the importance of safety in the home, school, and on the street, is taking applications for the 2017 program for this summer.

Those eligible to enroll should be registered to start kindergarten in the fall of 2017. It is not necessary to be a resident in the Wauseon school district.

Registration forms are available at the Wauseon Police Department, the Wauseon Primary School office, the Wauseon Public Library or by calling 419-337-7227. The “early bird” fee is $20, and should be paid by April 14. From April 15-May 12 the registration fee is $25. After May 12 the cost increases to $30.

Class sessions are June 5-16 and June 19-30. There is an option for a morning class which runs from 9:30-11:30 a.m., or an afternoon class from 1-3 p.m. On the registration form, indicate a first, second, and third choice of classes, as class size is limited. Parents will be contacted when their child is scheduled.

Safety City will be held at the Wauseon Primary School on Leggett Street. Along with the activities scheduled, the children receive a T-shirt and will meet several Safety Friends from the community.

Wauseon Safety City Registration forms can be picked up at the Wauseon Police Department.
