What We Do

On most days the POS schedule provides for a six-person team. This allows for three pairs of parents to walk around the campus and nearby neighborhood. We carry walkie-talkies and we provide an adult presence as an ordinary part of Lincoln's lunch-hour environment. As we walk about, we chat with students singly and in groups, then move on. We are extra eyes and ears in case of an accident or other emergency, but we are not expected to deal with any problems or situations beyond our comfort or authority levels. Staff is responsible for handling such things, which are very rare, and we can use the walkie-talkies to summon them if necessary.
