Basic Safety Education Program Overview
In June, Sheriff Deborah K. Burchett’s Community Services Division will conduct the Safety Village program in two Clark County areas. Safety Village is a basic safety educational program for Clark County children entering kindergarten and first grade (ages 4 to 5). Safety lessons include:
Shoplifting / theft
Street and safety signs
Drugs and poisons
These safety awareness lessons are conducted over a period of 2 hours per day. A graduation ceremony will be held on the last day of the program.
The Safety Village message is simple: To Keep Themselves Safe. The children will practice and experience situations so they can make the right, safe decision when confronted with real-life dangerous situations.
The Safety Village program is cosponsored by the Clark County schools, the Springfield Pilot Club, the Exchange Club of Springfield, the Clark County Farm Bureau, and the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.
Enrollment & Registration
Enrollment is limited and on a first-come basis. Children must attend the full four days to graduate on Thursday. Children may attend any location, but can only attend one session. The course is free, but it will be the parents’ responsibility to provide transportation. Due to COVID restrictions and in an effort to ensure compliance with health and safety standards, classes will be limited to 12 students.
To register your child for one of the 2021 classes, you will need to go to your child’s school and pick up a Safety Village form or complete an on-line registration for one of the available locations / programs listed below:
