Traffic & Patrol Sign up
During both before school begins and after school ends, the volunteers will be stationed outside in the parking lot to direct traffic flow; for the morning shift, the volunteers need to help the setup; afternoon shift will help to clean. This specific job entails that the volunteers control when and how the cars move while yielding traffic to pedestrians. Volunteers will assist in helping young children out of the car if necessary. (Note: Wednesday and Saturday volunteers are exempt from performing traffic control duties.)
During school hours, the volunteers will also stay in the school at designated areas. The volunteers will watch out for suspicious activity and walk around for patrolling at every 20-minute interval. This duty will also be performed during break time. For example, if the hour was at 9:00 AM, the volunteers will actively patrol at 9:20 AM, 9:40 AM, and 9:50 AM.
All patrol volunteers need to fulfill the duties to be eligible for the points.
*Volunteers, please sign in at the library before the duty time starts. In order to get your full volunteer points, please report to your duty on time.
