Safety Patrol

Safety Patrol members are school-sponsored student volunteers from upper elementary grades. Patrollers direct children, not traffic. As school-age leaders in traffic safety, patrol members teach other students about traffic safety on a peer-to-peer basis. They also serve as models for younger children, who look up to them.

All Safety Patrol Members must Take Their Duties Duties Seriously, Which Include:


  • Look, act and be alert.
  • Report for duty on time.
  • Always set a good example. Know and practice safe walking tips.
  • Never stop vehicles.
  • Perform your patrol duties faithfully.
  • Be neat and clean while on duty.
  • Be dependable and trustworthy.
  • Be courteous and polite at all times.
  • Treat others as you would like to be treated.
  • Wear your belt and badge proudly.
  • Remind classmates of safe walking rules without being bossy.

***If a Safety Patrol member cannot make one of the days on they’ve been assigned to work due to an absence, it is up to the Safety Patrol member to find a substitute for his/her self.

***All Safety Patrol members MUST be in good standing at school in order to be on Safety Patrol. Grades and behavior must be maintained at all times. If a Safety Patrol member does not keep up with schoolwork or has a behavior issue, the Safety Patrol member may be removed from Safety Patrol. If a Safety Patrol member does not show up to meetings or their assigned post, they are at risk for being removed from Safety Patrol.
