5th Grade Students are trained to instruct, direct, and control the student body in how to safely cross streets and play in areas near the school.
Students apply for this service group at the end of 4th grade, and, if accepted, are then a patroller during their entire 5th grade school year. This position requires a serious commitment and helps teach students responsibility.
Patrols are expected to serve daily during their one week shifts, before and after school from 8:00-8:10 a.m. and 2:30-2:40 p.m. all year long at pedestrian crossings.
Safety Patrol Expectations:
1. Take your job seriously.
2. Respect all who cross at your post. Your duty is to help keep your community and peers safe, not to discipline. Be courteous to students and all adults. Treat others the way you want to be treated.
3. Be alert on your post.
4. Perform your duty to the best of your ability.
5. Patrols must keep up with their class work and homework responsibilities.
6. Be on time to your post. If for any reason you cannot be at your post, please contact Mr. Gatenby.
