Safety Patrol

SAFETY PATROL 

Safety Patrol is open to any 3rd, 4th, or 5th grader who wants to help their school. As a member of the Haslet Elementary Safety Patrol, you will play a vital role in keeping students safe, and keeping the morning carline running smoothly. Thank you!

Procedures

(1) Safety Patrol Officers are in the office no later than 7:10 a.m., leave their backpacks in the office, pick up a vest, and are in front of the school by 7:15. (Bus riders see below.)

(2) Safety Patrol Officers who come by car should arrive early enough to avoid carline traffic. Parents can also park and walk Officers into the school.

(3) Safety Patrol Officers who ride the bus should immediately proceed to the office once they arrive then follow the instructions in (1) above. If their bus is scheduled to arrive after 7:20, they will need to find a ride to school on their assigned days.

(4) Safety Patrol Officers will serve every day of their shift, Monday through Friday. Shifts are 2 weeks long. Shifts will be covered by teams of 6-7 students. A minimum of 4 Officers is necessary every morning. If you must be absent, it is your responsibility to check with your fellow teammates to make sure they will be there. If not, it is your responsibility to find a substitute. The school cannot provide contact information, but you can use the PTA directory to help you find a substitute. ‚ÄčIf a student is absent more than twice without providing a substitute, s/he will be removed from Safety Patrol.

(5) No matter what the weather, we need you! If it is cold, please wear a jacket, gloves, scarf, cap, or whatever you need to stay warm. If it is raining, please bring an umbrella or hat, and wear shoes you don’t mind getting wet. You may even want to bring an extra, dry pair of shoes and socks to slip on after carline. (Parents – Don’t worry! If it’s really cold, we’ll have the students rotate inside to warm up, and if there's lightning, we will send them all inside.)

(6) Students must maintain a grade of 70% or above in all subjects.

(7) Students must exhibit good behavior at all times, both on Safety Patrol and in school. Students who make poor behavior choices, as determined by a teacher or school administrator, will lose the privilege of serving on Safety Patrol.

Check back in the fall for information about how to sign up.

Thank you for helping your school!
