Safety Focus Week at Central Primary

Deputy George Hawthorn shows Central Primary students features of his patrol car that help him perform his duties to serve and protect the community. 

Deputy Don Deaton discusses water safety with Central Primary students and teaches them about "Reach, throw, don't go." If someone is struggling to stay afloat, reach to assist them with a boat paddle or similar item, not with your hand. Keep something between you and the other person so that you are not pulled in with them. Throw a life saver or life jacket to the person in need of help and don't go into the water to help, as you may be pulled under, too. Always wear a life jacket when around water. 

Central Primary's safety focus week kicked off Monday morning with a visit from Clark County Sheriff Jason Watson and his deputies. Safety focus week activities will continue throughout the week for Central students with a variety of valuable lessons being taught by special guests each day. Other safety topics to be covered include Internet, weather, bicycle, fire and personal health. As part of Thursday's fire safety lesson, free smoke detectors will be provided to everyone who attends the evening demonstration at 6 P.M. in Central Primary's auditorium. A stuffed animal drive is also underway as part of safety week. Donate your new or gently used stuffed animals at Central Primary. 
“A little comfort can go a long way during a stressful time.” 
-Charlotte Dewitt, CPS Counselor 

At the end of the week, CPS will deliver the donated stuffed animals to the local police and sheriff's office for them to distribute to children who are involved in emergency situations. A little comfort can go a long way during a stressful time.
