As the teacher that oversees the Safety Patrol here at Oak Grove, I take pride in training 5th and 6th grade students to serve on Patrol. Each student must attend a training meeting. Most students will work for one week each month at their assigned station. Only responsible students will be able to serve as members of the Oak Grove Patrol. Members of the patrol are responsible for ensuring that walkers cross at the corner of Home Park and Center street safely. They also raise and lower the American flag, as well as setting up barricades in the the West parking lot.
