School Safety Patrol
The Sandburg Safety Patrol provides our students safe crossing of Avenida Del Gato from 7:30-7:45 a.m. while they are coming to school and from 1:50-2:05 p.m. as they go home from school. The selected students show an honest effort in school and are positive role models for other students. They are selected on the basis of academic performance, citizenship and maturity. They demonstrate the willingness to take responsibilities and give our children the safety they need.
The San Diego Police Department provides incentives for all patrol members by scheduling monthly outings that are either provided at no cost or greatly reduced prices. These outings include trips to Wild Rivers, Sea World, the movies, ice skating, sporting events, etc. During the summer recess, graduating members of the school patrol are treated to a four-day camp at Palomar Mountain Camp at no cost.
