Patrollers help keep Saskatchewan school zones safe by helping schoolmates cross streets safely to and from school. Patrollers gain confidence, learn responsibility, and leadership through the program. These traits enable patrollers to become safety ambassadors to students and community members. The program is successful thanks to the combined support of CAA Saskatchewan, municipal police, RCMP, school safety patrol coordinators, school divisions, teachers, parents, and the student volunteer patrollers.
If you have questions about the CAA School Safety Patrol® program or would like to start one in your school community, please contact us a email@example.com.
2022 CAA School Safety Patrol Month
CAA dedicates the month of May to our 4,100 CAA School Safety patrollers in Saskatchewan and May 2022 has been proclaimed CAA School Safety Patrol Month by the Honourable Dustin Duncan, Minister of Education.
For the month of May, CAA will be supplying registered schools with an in-school activity kit to recognize and to thank our dedicated patrollers. All registered schools will receive a small honourarium to help schools plan a special celebration for their patrollers. A CAA School Safety Patrol gift bag will be provided for each patroller.
Thank you, patrollers, for the valuable volunteer work that you do in helping to keep students and school zones safe. Thank you, safety patrol coordinators and law enforcement, for working with our patrollers for the safety of all students.
Here's how to start a CAA School Safety Patrol program!
CAA provides everything school coordinators need to start and run the program in their elementary school. We provide all equipment, at no charge, including reflector vests, stop paddles, Captain and Lieutenant pins, plus training materials for coordinators and patrollers. We can also help with recognition and award events for patrollers, plus we work with the Ministry of Education to thank our patrollers by having the month of May annually designated as CAA School Safety Patrol Month.
CAA organizes annual School Safety Patrol Jamborees at no cost to the patrollers or coordinators.
It’s important for all CAA School Safety Patrol Coordinators to register their schools with CAA Saskatchewan every fall at the start of the school year. This helps to ensure coordinators receive important updates and new information about the CAA School Safety Patrol program.
