Take the first steps towards independence! In this course, we will teach children the basics of being safe when home alone for short periods of time. We will talk about house safety, discuss internet safety, learn about accident prevention, fire safety prevention, and how to call 911. We will cover simple first aid techniques, such as how to relieve choking, and talk about how to use our time wisely.
As of August 16,2021, the Chelmsford School District Superintendent's office is requiring the use of masks for all people - vaccinated or unvaccinated - when inside any of our school buildings, so please remember to bring a mask to class with you.
