The Mansfield Division of Police has announced the opening of the 2017 “Safety Town Program.” Started in 1937 by Mansfield Police Officer Frend Boals, the “Safety Town” program is based on an educational platform designed to provide pre-kindergarten children with valuable traffic and personal safety tips and awareness.
Below is a list of the dates for this year’s sessions. The sessions are divided out by the Mansfield City elementary school your child will attend in the fall. This is done so that the attendees can become familiar with those students who they will be attending school with during the 2017-2018 school year. All children entering kindergarten in the fall of 2017 are invited to attend. All sessions start at 9am each morning and end at noon at the Spanish Immersion School (Brinkerhoff School) located at 240 Euclid Avenue.
Please refer to the below information to determine which session your child is assigned to, based on the school they will be attending. Children whose school is not listed below will be assigned to a session with other children in the same school district.
All children MUST BE PRE-REGISTERED to attend Safety Town. The registration cut off for a session is one week prior to the start of that session.
