Important Reminder Regarding School PatrolsTo all H S Paul Parents regarding School Patrols
Our school patrols perform a very important function. They attempt to provide safe passage for those students crossing busy intersections on their route to and from school. It is vitally important that all adults, students and vehicle drivers watch and obey the patrols. All the grade 5/6 students take turns as a school patrol.
An Important Cold Weather Note:
Patrols will serve shortened shifts during temperatures between –30º and –35º C
At temperatures below –35º C there will be no safety patrols or adult supervisor on duty due to dangerous conditions presented by the weather.
Please refer to the H S Paul website for the weather reading.
Student patrols are on duty:
MORNING: 8:00 a.m. to 8:25 a.m. and 11:05 AM to 11:15 a.m.
AFTERNOON: 12:00 p.m. to 12:15 p.m. and 2:55 AM to 3:15 p.m.
Therefore, in order to protect the safety and the welfare of the children, we emphasize that
whenever possible, students arrive at school during the times that there are patrols, crossing
guards, teachers, and paraprofessionals on duty. When a child in the younger grades is new to the
area or unsure about daily routines, parents should arrange to have the child escorted home.
For the safety of all in the community, it is imperative that parents and other drivers obey
street signage in the areas immediately surrounding the school. Disregarding signage for
convenience, stopping at random, opening car doors into and crossing mid-street hampers traffic and
pedestrian movement, compromising the safety of all. Parents who choose to drive their children to
and from school are encouraged to drop students off as safe distance from the school, allowing
students to walk a short distance and cross safely with patrol supervision. Patrols have been
positioned with the assistance of the Winnipeg Police Service to ensure safety and maintain
efficient traffic flow.
Please do not use the staff parking lot as a drop off for your child. The
parking lot is for staff parking and drop off for the Ashworth Day Care only.
