At Home Alone Workshop: Wednesday, May 8

On Wednesday, May 8 from 6:00-8:00 pm, Public Health will offer 8 families the opportunity to take the “At Home Alone” workshop at the school.  Confirmation is on a first-come basis.  This program was developed to help families prepare their 10 to 14 year olds to be home alone safely.

The aim of the program is to increase safety in various situations that may occur while 10 to 14 year olds are home alone. It promotes safe physical activity by encouraging families to practice walking safely between home, school and activities. Studies show that physical activity, such as walking, is beneficial to students’ health and performance at school. This program will help families: • communicate together • find out if they are comfortable leaving 10 to 14 year olds home alone • increase safety awareness • develop a contract/agreement between parents and their 10 to 14 year olds .
