Safety Patrol

 SAFETY PATROL PROCEDURES 

Safety Patrol is open to all 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders who want to serve their school. Members of Safety Patrol play a vital role in keeping students safe, and helping morning carline to run smoothly.

Procedures

(1) Safety Patrol Officers are in the office by 7:10 a.m., leave their backpacks in the office, pick up a vest, and are in their assigned spot (out front of the school) by 7:15 a.m. (Bus riders and Choir members, 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 7:10, they will need someone to drive them to school on their assigned days.

(4) Choir is held Tuesday mornings before school. Safety Patrol Officers who are in choir will be excused from Safety Patrol on those mornings - but we need you every other day!

(5) 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 4-6 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. If you are absent more than once for a reason other than illness, you will be removed from Safety Patrol for the remainder of the school year.

(6) 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. If there is thunder or lightning, no one goes outside at all.)

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

(8) Being on Safety Patrol is a privilege. Students must exhibit good behavior at all times, 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.
