Thank you school crossing guards – February is Crossing Guard Appreciation Month

February 4, 2019

GUELPH, Ontario – February is School Crossing Guard Appreciation Month, where we take time to thank these valuable members of our school communities.

School crossing guards are a vital part of our school communities. Crossing guards are dedicated, friendly, reliable and community minded. They assist students and other pedestrians during school arrival and dismissal times to ensure safety when crossing busy streets.

This month, take some time during your walk to school to thank the crossing guards in your community for helping to keep UGDSB students safe.

The City of Guelph has provided some resources to help make saying thank you fun by providing thank you cards personalized to Crossing Guards.
