School Crossing Guard Recognition

School Crossing Guard Recognition

School crossing guards play an important role in the lives of children who walk or bicycle to school by helping them safely cross the street at key locations. They remind drivers of the presence of pedestrians and can lead to more parents feeling comfortable about their children walking or bicycling to school. Crossing guards also are role models helping children develop the necessary skills to cross streets safely at all times.

The Mayor and Council will recognize the dedicated service of the Township of Scugog's nine regular crossing guards at the Council meeting of March 30, 2015.

Please use caution when approaching a school crossing to ensure the safety of Scugog's students.
