Students at Hempstead Elementary are greeted with a smile in the student drop off line each morning as members of the HES Safety Patrol are there to assist them in getting out of their vehicle.
Students and staff are ready each morning at 7:35 a.m. in the drop off line at Hempstead Elementary to welcome students to school. To help ensure our students safety, please do not drop off any students at the elementary unattended and remember to observe the school safety zone around the schools and in the drop off line.
Students are selected by teacher and principal recommendations to be a part of the Safety Patrol at Hempstead Elementary and they take their job very seriously. Each student and their parents signed a contract agreeing to exemplify the three B’s at all times. Be Safe - follow directions and wear safety vests at all times; Be Responsible - keep grades up and complete all assignments; and Be Respectful - no discipline issues and respect all adults on campus.
The group also assists in delivering morning breakfast coolers to the classrooms each day. All students at Hempstead Elementary receive a free breakfast in the classroom each morning.
Thank you Safety Patrol for being great role models at Hempstead Elementary. Hempstead ISD...One Town...One Team...One Goal!
