Fayette County Public Health will again offer the Safe Sitter course this summer. This program is designed to prepare students going into sixth, seventh, and eighth grades to be safe when they’re home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting. It is a one-day class. Students will learn safety, child care, first aid, rescue, and business skills.
Classes are June 21 and June 27, and the hours are 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The cost is $50, payable on the day of class. Students need to bring a packed lunch. Each participant receives a backpack with a book of everything they learn that day, a flashlight, special note pads for instructions, and a Band-Aid dispenser.
Registration is required. Please call 740-335-5910 or visit this link to register. If you have questions, ask for Janessa Williamson, RN. Registration forms are due back to the health department no later than June 9.
