Our school safety patrols consist of Grade 5 and 6 student volunteers. We have two patrol team captains. Patrols are on for 15 minutes before school commences and 10 minutes after dismissal.
If students cannot fulfill their patrol duties, parents are asked to call the school before 8:30 a.m.
Parents of patrols are asked to check the temperature with wind chill and send their patrols out according to the schedule. All parents are asked to make any arrangements necessary for their children to get to school safely during extreme weather conditions.
