Safety Town Registration Now Open


For the 63rd year, Safety Town will take place during the weeks of June 10th, June 17, June 24, and July 8.

The free program is held for children who will be entering kindergarten in the fall (2024-2025).

Programming includes pedestrian safety, traffic signals, and signs, fire safety, good and bad touch, not getting in cars with strangers, and hazards of drugs, among other things.

Instructors are trained Officers from the Bellefontaine Police Department, Logan County Sheriff’s Office, Township Officers, and the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

The instructors use films, lectures, coloring books, traffic signs and signals, and stress vehicle and bus safety during their time with the students.

Sessions will be held at Mac-A-Cheek Learning Center (formerly Western Intermediate School) at 1130 West Sandusky Avenue, where the children will enter through the rear doors.

Classes last approximately two hours and are held Monday through Friday (no sessions on 6/19/24 due to the Federal Holiday) with both 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. sessions available.

Parents may attend sessions with their children as needed or desired and should inform the instructor of their intent when signing in their child each day.

If you have any questions or need more information please feel free to contact the parks dept at (937) 592-3475 or [email protected].
