Can I Get The Job I Want? • Sometimes • Students always get to choose the job they get, but a job you are hoping for may have been selected by another student before you get the chance
Will I Get to Wear the Vest? • Maybe - Likely • Priority is given to outside jobs and cafeteria duties. • There are usually vests left over, enough for every child. You should be able to wear when you are patrolling.

So How Do I Get a Job? • You’ll get a application that needs to be signed by you as well as a parent/guardian • Your teacher will also need to sign the application and say if you have the good grades and the great behavior that it takes to be a Safety Patrol. • Then Mr. “D” will access who is eligible for Lookout Scout positions.
