Safety Patrol Program
Safety Patrols are a select group of Fifth Graders that are committed to providing a safe school environment for all students at Melrose Elementary. Patrol membership is an honored position. Being a patrol is a lot of work and a BIG responsibility. Safety Patrol participation offers students an early opportunity to serve as a school volunteer. It is an organization that promotes:
Be at your post on time every day.
Have no frequent tardies or absences.
Wear your safety patrol belt every day.
Watch to be sure the students are walking and are making good choices.
Notify Mrs. Smith of students not following the rules.
Positive behavior is expected in your classroom and all around campus. Any behavior problems may result in time off from patrols or removal from patrols.
Maintain grades of at least a B or better throughout the whole year.
Maintain a conduct grade of E or V.
Melrose Safety Patrol membership is an honor and a privilege. Safety Patrol is a job of commitment and service to your school throughout the year. Patrols must display leadership qualities and be responsible. They will assist with morning student drop-off and afternoon dismissal. Patrol duties will include opening/closing doors, being courteous to adults and children, assisting students in the halls and walkways, displaying and taking care of the United States Flag and monitoring appropriate student behavior in the hallways before and after school. Whether patrols are on-duty or off-duty, they should observe the school rules and set a good example for fellow Melrose Manatees.
