Safety Monitor includes courtyard lunch

Parents will be assigned to stations throughout the building and outside to ensure a safe environment.  Safety Monitors are expected to assist students in case of falls, injury or other issues; verify that unidentified adults in the area are authorized to be there; and direct students to classes as needed.  Safety Monitors may also be asked to help teachers on their floor insure small children get to and from the bathroom as needed.

Lunch-time safety monitors need to be standing/walking in the courtyard and gym area, supervising students' play to ensure that they are playing safely and showing respect for people and property. Parents who need to attend to their own children during lunch should not volunteer for positions at this hour.

Safety Monitors must be assertive and comfortable approaching students and adults in a variety of situations to question or correct problems.  They should appear alert and interactive with people passing by, a visible presence that will help ensure that our students are protected.

All safety monitors change on the :45 of each hour.   It is imperative that safety monitors are in position at the appointed time.   Please arrange with another parent to escort your child between classes, if needed.
