Safety Patrol is for 5th grade students only. Students were chosen by application and by Mrs. Hatch as those that were best suited for this job. Safety Patrol Members are held at the highest standard in behavior and academics since they are setting the example for all of their peers and the younger students in the school.
Parents also have to be an important part as they have to provide transportation in the mornings so Safety Patrol Members can be at school early to be at their post on time. Safety Patrol members help in the hall way and out on the sidewalks to provide order and safety. Another Safety Patrol job is to put out Tether balls for students to use during recess. Safety Patrol members rotate positions and remain on the job for the entire school year.
