Two radKIDS courses slated for June and July

Two radKIDS courses slated for June and July

For the 18th year, the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office will host radKIDS® Defense Courses for children this summer. These courses are designed for children 5 to 12 years of age and provide hands-on techniques giving children the tools they need to identify, avoid and if necessary, respond to danger.

The schedule for the courses is as follows:

- The Learning Center at Lady of the Sea Hospital, 200 West 134th Place, Cut Off; Monday, June 20 through Thursday, June 23. Deadline to register is Friday, June 17.

- American Legion Hall, 238 Bowie Road, Raceland; Tuesday, July 5 through Friday, July 8. Deadline to register is Friday, July 1.

A third class will be held in Thibodaux in July with dates and location to be announced later this month.

Children, ages 5-7, attend daily morning sessions from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., and an afternoon session is held from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. for children ages 8-12.

Parents can elect to drop their child(ren) off or stay for the two-hour program each day. Children are urged to wear comfortable clothing and tennis shoes.

Cost is $10 per child (for course materials).

Class size is limited, so advance registration is required.

To register, please download and complete the registration form. Send completed form and $10 check (made payable to Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office) to: Sergeant Carla Landry, 1156 Highway 90 East, Raceland, LA 70394. For more information, contact Sergeant Carla Landry at (985) 537-9652 or
