Students Travel To Safe and Sound Town | Families
Students at Saxe Gotha Elementary recently traveled through Safe and Sound Town to learn important safety lessons.
Students acted as drivers and traveled on tricycles while Richland County Sheriff deputies talked to the students about the importance of wearing helmets and seat belts, watching out for pedestrians and obeying traffic signals and signs. The deputies talked to the students acting as pedestrians walking through the town about how to safely cross the street, what side of the street to walk on and other important pedestrian safety tips.
After students completed their trip through Safe and Sound Town, students received safety workbooks, badges and a certificate of completion. The Richland County Sheriff’s Department also donated bicycle helmets to the school.
The Richland County Sheriff’s Department offers the interactive safety program to first-grade classes in Richland and Lexington County schools.
