Patrols InformationJanuary 12, 2023
The LaVérendrye School Patrols consist of a team of Grade 5 and 6 students. Our Patrol supervisors this year are Mme Sylvie and Mme Bailey.
Our Patrols assist our students and families to cross 3 intersections around our school. The intersections are Lilac and Warsaw, Lilac and Jessie, and Wentworth and Warsaw.
Patrols are on duty from 8:15-8:30 a.m. 11:25-11:40 a.m., 12:25-12:40 a.m. and 2:55-3:10 p.m. During the winter months, patrols continue to be assigned to their regular posts if the weather (including wind chill) reaches -17 to -26 C. Once the temperature reaches -27 to -33 C, one patrol will be assigned to a crossing area and will switch with another patrol every 7 minutes. No patrols are on duty with a temperature of -34 or below.
When the weather is -34 or below, patrols may be reassigned to indoor duties.
Constable Mitch Rochon has recommended we use traffic cones to allow motorists to see our Patrols and allow them to cross students safely.
