Our Hawk Ridge Safety Patrol consists of responsible 5th graders who exemplify excellent character. They must maintain at least a B average. During their scheduled rotation they must be at school by 7:15. There are a total of 8 positions, 6 are morning and afternoon and two are afternoon only. We rotate these positions and safety patrol members every 4-6 weeks. These fifth graders may serve several times during the year. We recruit 4th graders who have been nominated by their teachers. These 4th graders are trained by current 5th grade Safety Patrol and begin their 5th grade year as our first rotation. We then take applications for other safety patrol positions. These applications need to be signed by their parents and teachers before they can become eligible.
