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 6). Safety lessons include:
Drugs and poisons
Shoplifting / theft
Street and safety signs
These safety awareness lessons are conducted over a period of 2 1/2 hours per day. A graduation ceremony will be held on the last day of the program. Message 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. Sponsors The Safety Village program is cosponsored by the Clark County schools, the Springfield Pilot Club, 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. To register your child, you will need to go to your child's school and pick up a Safety Village form or complete it online.
