Congratulations! Your child has expressed a desire, or has been selected, to serve in the BCAA Road Safety Foundation (RSF) School Safety Patrol. Service in the patrol is open to all interested students that meet criteria set by each school. Duties will require a short amount of time, generally before and/or after school.
The BCAA RSF School Safety Patrol program provides safety patrol equipment, training materials and student resources to train students on recommended safety practices and patrol procedures.
All student patrol members must participate in a safety patrol training session and wear reflective vests and wristbands when on duty. Each patrol team consists of three students who position themselves curbside, rather than on the roadway. The lieutenant/captain of the team uses whistle and voice commands to signal the other two patrollers who use stop signs.
School Safety Patrol membership is an honoured and privileged position. With your endorsement and support, your child will shoulder responsibilities that will strengthen character and provide an opportunity to help fellow students develop a better understanding of pedestrian and traffic safety.
- Volunteer to be the Traffic Safety Coordinator for your school’s Parent Advisory Council (PAC)
- Meet your child’s Safety Patrol Coordinator and ask questions
- Talk to your child about their patrol responsibilities
- Ask your child to demonstrate what they have learned
- Donate or raise funds for student patrol recognition
