School Safety Patrol

Both of my children were ecstatic when they were selected to be a school safety patrol. Our elementary school takes this role seriously; each patrol must recite the patrol pledge and thoroughly read the safety rules.

School Safety Patrol Pledge

I promise to do my best to:

  • Report on time,
  • Perform my duties faithfully,
  • Make every effort to prevent accidents,
  • Set a good example,
  • Obey my teachers and officers of the patrol,
  • Report unsafe student practices, and
  • Earn the respect of fellow students.
  • School Safety Patrol Rules

    An elementary school safety should adhere to the following:

    1. Be alert.
    2. Report for duty on time.
