Some of you parents may be entering new territory this fall. Your kids seem “too old” for babysitters. (They are almost old enough to be babysitters.) But you’ve never left them alone.

Or maybe your tweens recently started staying “home alone” after school, but you’re uneasy about it.

Every year, the Town offers help through a Home Alone Safety class for 6th through 8th graders. Officer Kevin Landry is teaming up with Southborough Recreation again to offer the class again this spring.

It is free to Southborough residents.

(A free class that lets you feel good about not paying for after school care anymore? Or lets you have a date night without adding a fortune in babysitting costs? Who can pass that up?)

It will be held Friday, May 11, 6:00-6:45 pm at the Senior Center. Pre-registration is required (and due by May 4th.)

The class will equip tweens with the knowledge they need to avoid danger and handle emergencies.

Southborough Police Officer Kevin Landry will teach kids about:

  • accident and fire protection
  • first aid techniques
  • internet safety
  • techniques for answering the phone and door

The class includes a variety of teaching methods, including a video and role playing. 

Online enrollment is available the Rec Dept website.
