Marymount parents join parents from other independent schools to walk a Safety Patrol on the blocks near their schools. The schools form a strong “neighborhood watch” network that helps to keep all of our children safe.
At Marymount, each family in Classes K-X is obligated to walk. If you have more than one child, it is possible you may be assigned to walk a second time. Families are randomly selected and assigned a date and a walking partner from within the same grade level. Only one parent from each selected family has to walk. No substitution such as nannies or extended family members is allowed. If the date assigned to you does not work, you are responsible to find a replacement by swapping a date with another person and informing us of the change. Walkers put on a bright orange “Safety Patrol” vest and begin walking promptly at 3:00 p.m. Each walk ends at 4:45 p.m.
