The Safety Patrol at Gotham Avenue School assists younger peers. During arrivals and dismissals, students adorned in neon-yellow sashes can be seen on duty as the Safety Patrol. Thirty-three fifth and sixth grade students assist in safely escorting younger students to and from the buses, as well as to the gymnasium for the afterschool program.
The Safety Patrol Program kicked off in October. Students were selected for this responsibility after filling out an application form, which was reviewed by Assistant Principal Robert Cavaliere and Safety Patrol Coordinators Mary Weber and Sara Alfa. Teacher recommendations were also required. Through the program, students learn the importance of accountability. They adhere to school guidelines, keeping track of the students and leading them to their respective destinations in organized lines.
The Safety Patrol Program will last through the end of the school year.
