Street Patrols

Grade 5 students patrol at the front/bus doors and at designated street crossings before and after school.  Student street patrols are expected to be at school for an 8:40 a.m. meeting and in the afternoon are on duty until the buses have departed. They are expected to dress appropriately for the weather. Student street patrols must be willing to serve outside during all types of weather (rain or below zero). Grade 4 students apply for this position in the spring.

Bus Patrols

Grade 5 students must ride the bus in order to be a bus patrol. Student bus patrols are to be leaders on the bus, to help the bus driver get to and from school without any incidents on the bus, and to help set a theme of safety at school and on the bus. Depending on the schedule, they may also be responsible for leading kindergartners to the proper bus. Grade 4 students apply for this position in the spring.
