The Safety Patrol is an important part of Pines Lakes Elementary School. As safety patrol members, fifth grade students learn to accept responsibility and to develop leadership abilities. Patrol members become aware of their role as safety leaders and realize they can make an important contribution to the safety of other children. Safety Patrol members are selected on the basis of maturity, leadership, dependability, and consent of parents and teachers. The duties of patrol members are described fully to them by the supervisor. Recognition is provided at the end of the school year for safety patrol members.
Students selected as a Safety Patrol must be in school by 7:20am and report to their assigned post.
