Safety Patrols


Our school safety program will:

  • Safeguard children as they cross or walk along streets.
  • Develop in school children an awareness of traffic hazards.
  • Instill proper attitudes toward safety so that students will acquire habits of practicing self-controlled behavior as they travel to and from school and at other times.
  • Lead students toward developing a sense of responsibility for taking part in a general program of safety in the school and community.
  • Develop character, leadership, and cooperative citizenship.

The selection process...

At Marion W. Savage patrol members are chosen at the end of the fourth and fifth grade years. Written approval of a parent or guardian must be secured before the student is selected. Desirable qualities kept in mind when selecting patrol members include leadership, reliability, respect and obedience.
