Zolfo Springs Elementary School



Each year we look forward to selecting our school's safety patrol members.  Service is voluntary and interested 4th grade students may obtain an application from their 4th grade teacher.  Members are selected for their courtesy, dependability, interest in their job, attitude toward others, and scholastic standing.


The safety patrol follow an award/demerit system to ensure that students maintain the high standards of the program.  Students receiving demerits - for failing schoolwork, classroom discipline, being late for duty assignments, etc., may be dismissed from the patrol.  If disciplinary action is necessary, your full cooperation will be appreciated.


The following criteria must be met  for consideration for safety patrol:

* Must be able to be on duty between 7:00 - 7:30 A.M. and /or 1:40 - 2:00 P.M. 

* Teacher recommendation

* Good attendance

* Completed Essay

Selected patrols will meet with Ms. Gover and be assigned to posts along with 5th grade patrols for the remainder of the year. Upon returning as 5th graders, the patrols will embark in their routines as full-fledged patrols.

The safety patrol's job is to remind students of the school safety rules and to guide them in safe arrival, dismissal, and movement throughout the school campus.  Safety patrols are at their posts to assist students in arriving and departing the school grounds safely. Students and families are expected to follow the direction of the patrols.
