OUR SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER
The School Resource Officer is a cooperative program that utilizes a uniformed police officer within the school systems in Camrose, Alberta. It is a joint effort with funding from Battle River School District, Elk Island Catholic Schools and the City of Camrose. It provides both a proactive and reactive resource for the schools within our city.
Our School Resource Officer, Const. John Fernhout provides support and educational programs for our grade 3 students. He is a member of the school and has a role supporting students. He is open to answer and support any students. His role inside the school is less about policing and more about community support and building relationships with students.
SCHOOL SAFETY PATROLLERS IN TRAINING!
We appreciate the ongoing support and patience by our parents who drop off/pick up their children. **Please be safe and use the designated crosswalks**.
Thank you to our grade 4 students who volunteered and their leader Ms. Gauthier for the work with the School Safety Patrol Program.
**PLEASE STAY CLEAR OF THE BUS LANES AT THE
BEGINNING AND END OF THE SCHOOL DAY**
***FOR FAMILIES/STUDENTS USING 54TH AVE (on North side of school yard) AS PICK UP/DROP OFF-PLEASE USE EXTREME CAUTION. THERE ARE NO CROSSWALKS THERE AND THAT IS A VERY BUSY STREET WITH HEAVY TRAFFIC***
