What is Safety Patrol?
The School Safety Patrol program was started in 1946 by the California State
Automobile Association to ensure the safe crossing of children to and from school. The safety patrol program is a vital part of promoting traffic safety around Scott Lane.
The students in this program are actively involved in the control of the student body and traffic situations.
Scott Lane's Safety Patrol is a select group of Fifth Graders that are committed to providing a safe school environment for all students at Scott Lane Elementary. They protect students from the hazards of crossing crosswalks on campus, and teach fellow students about traffic safety.
A Safety Patrol member should be responsible, respectful, cooperative, and helpful.
They should always model Scott Lane Values and follow our 3 Agreements.
