Safety Patrols (5th Grade)

School 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. School Safety Patrol members:

  • Complete training in traffic safety;
  • Protect students from hazards of crossing roads and highways on their way to and from school;
  • Assist bus drivers in safely transporting students to and from school;
  • Teach fellow students about traffic safety; and
  • Serve in other leadership roles under the direction of school officials.

Typically, teachers and principals appoint patrol members, who participate with parental approval. A teacher usually serves as the patrol advisor.
