IHFB Student Safety Patrols

The safety of school children traveling to and from school is a responsibility of all concerned – parents, citizens, school officials, law enforcement officials, and students themselves. The school’s greatest responsibility lies in those areas immediately adjacent to school property. In an effort to carry out its responsibility, the school may participate in a cooperative effort with the police department and parents in the formation and operation of a student safety patrol at identified school areas.
The school’s participation will not extend beyond those intersections adjoining school grounds. Further, this participation will be limited to those intersections through which vehicular traffic flows in such a manner as to provide gaps sufficient to allow student crossings. The details of the safety patrol will be worked out by the administrators working with the police department and parent volunteers.
Student Safety Patrols may be established in schools according to the following principles:
