Little Learners, Big Lessons: K Safety Day!
Show Notes

In 2020 COVID-19 forced the delay or cancellation of so many memorable school moments.  As a result, the incoming class of kindergarten students missed out on one of the rites of passage to turning five years old: Safety Town! Safety Town teaches five year olds important lessons about personal and community safety. To ensure these young students received these critical lessons the Elyria Schools team of Community Engagement Liaisons, led by Ashley Csata, initiated Kindergarten Safety Day for the kindergarteners who missed Safety Town in 2020. Safety Day took place over two weeks in May 2021. Partners included Elyria Police Department, Elyria Fire Department, Lorain County Sheriff's Office, Elyria Parks and Recreation and Lifecare Ambulance Services.
