Nottingham Elementary School recently kicked off its Safety Patrol program for 2018-19 with the induction of 22 fourth grade students into the patrol, which is sponsored by the AAA Mid-Atlantic Foundation for Safety and Education and the Oxford Borough Police Department. Patrollers help direct fellow students to safely cross streets and driveways, exit and enter buses, and walk to their homerooms quickly and quietly.
Patrol members also teach other students about traffic safety on a peer-to-peer basis and serve as role models. Members receive complete training in traffic safety, and develop safety awareness, leadership skills, the ability to work as a team, self-esteem, civic mindedness and respect for law enforcement.
