KCH Safety Patrol walks the beat, keeps students safe

About 70 third-graders at K.C. Heffernan Elementary have been tapped to staff the school’s Safety Patrol this year. Every three months, a group of 20-plus patrol members rotates into service, to help their peers and younger students enter and exit the school safely. Safety Patrol members are stationed around the school by the front entrance, on the sidewalk leading up to the school and other key places.
All third-grade students are eligible to be in the program. Here’s how it works: At the beginning of the year, the principal and school resource officer visit each third-grade classroom and explain the program. Interested students can then complete an application and have it signed by a parent.
