The Highlands Safety Patrol program provides an opportunity for fifth grade students to develop responsibility and leadership. The primary function is to maintain a safe environment at our school crossings. Students must have their parents' and teacher's permission to serve in the School Safety Patrol Program.
Highlands Safety Patrol is a service activity open to all grade 5 students!
Students sign up for this activity each Fall.
They provide crossing supervision at street corners near the school and are under the direction of a teacher and paraprofessional.
Participants are usually scheduled for one week at a time, rotating on a three week schedule.
They must arrive early or stay late in order to provide this service.
When the air temperature is -20 degrees or the Wind Chill Index is -30 degrees, we will not send the safety patrols out due to safety concerns.
