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.
