DON'T FORGET TO BRING YOUR HELMET!
|Chad Arp, Cherokee County FEMS and Cherokee Safe Kids Coalition Leader fits helmets on the first day
Volunteer safety professionals will ensure that your child
is wearing the proper helmet and that it fits properly.
Our tentative schedule is as follows:
Monday: Water/Weather Safety Day AND Fitting Bike Helmets
Animal Safety Day - PICTURE DAY - WEAR T-SHIRT!!!
Wednesday: School Bus Safety Day/Poison
Thursday: Stranger Day
Friday: Fire Safety Day/GRADUATION WEAR T-SHIRT!
announcements will be posted on this website.
Each day your child will bring home their activity for the
day and handouts explaining what they learned for that particular safety topic. Please be sure to ask your child about
the day's safety message. In addition to individual safety topics, each day the children will have time to "ride"
or "walk" the town, under the supervision of a Woodstock City Police Officer or Cherokee County Sheriff.
Please escort your child into the school cafeteria between 8:45 and 8:55 am. At that time, your
child will be assigned his/her permanent group for the week. A nametag which contains all emergency information will
be given to wear each day. PLEASE REVIEW THE NAMETAG FOR ACCURACY.
The first activity starts
at 9 am. SNACKS ARE PROVIDED EACH DAY. If your child requires special food, please send in his/her
own snack. Also, please note that we are not able to administer medications.
Please note that each day special guest speakers will address the Safety Message of the Day which sometimes means we have
to alter the pick up, drop off, or parking locations. This is done for the safety of the children.
PLEASE BE PREPARED TO PICK UP YOUR CHILD AT 12 NOON. We ask that you park and come into the building to pick up your
child and his/her belongings. It's a great opportunity for you to come and watch the wrap up and for us to speak
to you if need be. Please send a note if your child is to ride with another parent. IF YOU GET DELAYED or need
to contact us, please CALL 678-234-0456 OR 404-626-4080.
NEW - A "CODE
WORD" WILL BE REQUIRED TO RELEASE YOUR CHILD. PLEASE REFER TO THE DIRECTIONS ON THE REGISTRATION FORM. PLEASE
NOTE THAT YOUR CHILD WILL NOT BE RELEASED TO ANYONE WHO DOES NOT KNOW THE CODE WORD - REGARDLESS OF THEIR RELATIONSHIP
TO THE CHILD! The requirement of a code word emphasizes what they are taught as part of the stranger
Lastly, every attempt is made to honor a request for friends to be in
the same group. However, there are sometimes circumstances that will prevent us from honoring this request (friend group
is too large, last minute enrollment). Children in different groups does not impact car pooling. Please
be patient and remember that your child will have a wonderful experience while making new friends!
We are looking forward to a wonderful week at Safety Town!
See you soon.
