Welcome to Safety Patrol
Members of the Patrol are selected for their respectfulness,dependability, interest, attitude, and behavior. Service on the Patrol is voluntary, and will require that a commitment be made for the entire year.
Patrol members are required to arrive to school twenty five minutes early (7:30 am) and stay till (3:45 pm) on days they have duty. Participation in after school clubs will be allowed after patrol duties are completed or at 3:30. Students on Safety Patrol must maintain an average of 70 or better in all subjects and have an “S” or better in classroom behavior. Grades are checked at regular intervals and students whose grades fall below these expectations are on a leave of absence until their grades improve.
School Safety Patrol membership is an honored position. Patrol members play a very important role in protecting children from accidents while they are on their way to and from school. They also set an example of good citizenship and leadership, and are looked up to by the students.
If you need a substitute, it is your responsibility to find one. We sent home substitute lists, if you need another one, please email Mrs. Newkirk. If you know you are going out of town, please remember to contact Mrs. Newkirk so we will not schedule you that week. If your student carpools with another student on Safety Patrol and would like both children to be placed on the same week, please contact us immediately.
Positions and Posts are located at the Safety Patrol Closet and 5th Grade Hallway. Safety Patrol members must check it weekly for assignment.
