Crossing Guard Appreciation Day
Tuesday, May 4, 2010, is “.” Crossing guards play a critical role in our communities and help make streets safer for children going to and from school. There are many ways you can show appreciation for your crossing guards including some ideas from the Active Transportation Alliance. The Alliance would also like to hear your stories about crossing guards who deserve recognition for their work. Tell your story by completing their Crossing Guard Nomination form, and you may be featured in Active Transportation’s monthly newsletter.
As a reminder, the U.S. Federal Highway Administration established new standards and guidance for adult school crossing guards in Part 7 (Traffic Control for School Areas) of the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). Review the standards and guidance in Section 7D.
