How Parents Can Help
For liability and insurance purposes, crossing guards are only permitted to cross students during their scheduled shifts. As a parent, you should encourage your children to become familiar with the scheduled times when crossing guards are at the crossing to ensure they have a safe trip to and from school.
How Motorists Can Help
The Highway Traffic Act requires motorists to stop and obey a school crossing guard.
