History of the Patrol

  • Horace Mann School had for many years improved the safety of traditional School Patrol crossings by forming unofficial walking lines. There were several lines available depending on where patrol members lived. During the pandemic, it has been difficult to staff patrol members. In 2020-2021, HMS had to have stationary patrols near the school.

    Look for information in the Perspectives for details on the 2021-2022 school year. If HMS has walking lines, you may join a line if you live within walking distance. You do not need to register your child. You can show up at the approximate times listed above and introduce your child to the current patrol leader or contact the patrol supervisor, Mark Castillo, for more details.


  • At the end of the school year, ALL patrol equipment needs to be returned to school for the summer. There are two options for this: 

    1. After patrols finish their routes on the last day of school, the patrol member can return to school and drop off the flag and vest in the flag bin on the 2200 or red floor.
    2. School patrol members may return their equipment to the Gym Office the day after school is out before 2pm.
