Safety Patrol is an opportunity for our fifth grade students to practice leadership skills. They serve as role models for younger students and their peers. After completing an application , Safety Patrol members will be selected based upon teacher recommendations, behavior at school and grades. Each 9 weeks a new crew will begin.
All safety patrol members must meet the following behavior and academic guidelines prior to being selected and throughout their participation in safety patrol:
- All behavior marks on their report card are above a "U" which includes outclass
- All grades are at a 75 or higher on their report card and progress report
- Teacher recommendation every report card marking
- No office referrals
Students not meeting the guidelines on their report card or progress report during their fifth grade year will be placed on probation. If their grades improve, they will be put back on the schedule, per teacher recommendation. Any deficiency slips or behavior reports may jeopardize their job assignment.
Safety patrol requires students to spend additional time at school for their job. Morning patrol students are required to be at school by 7:25 a.m. for their duty from 7:30 to 8:00 a.m. Afternoon patrol for students is from 3:25 to 3:45. Afternoon patrol student must be picked up 3:50.
Safety patrol is a job and your student must treat it as one. While on the job, safety patrol students are expected to uphold all of their duties at their post and act responsibly and safely.
