Fifth-graders Jennah Ortiz and Cal Davies were recognized Tuesday at the Oberlin board of education meeting as Prospect Elementary School’s safety patrol lieutenants. Principal Jim Eibel said it’s a big deal to be a lieutenant at the school. The two students are the school’s main hall monitors and safety guards.

Ortiz and Davies work with other safety guards to enforce rules such as no running in the halls, looking both ways before crossing the road, walking up the right side of the stairs, and praising people when they are doing something to keep everyone safe.
