St. Hugh Catholic School Safety Patrol Program
Role of the AAA School Safety Patrol.
AAA School Safety Patrollers are school-sponsored student volunteers from upper elementary, middle and junior high schools.
Patrollers direct children, not traffic. As school-age leaders in traffic safety, Patrollers teach other students about traffic safety on a peer-to-peer basis.
They also serve as role models for younger children. Typically, teachers and principals appoint Patrollers, who participate with parental approval.
A teacher usually serves as Patrol Advisor.
