The Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board joins communities and families across the province in celebrating and recognizing our school crossing guards who daily help our students with their active and safe travel to and from school.

Today and every day, we thank you for your service.

Support your local school crossing guards by following these guidelines:
• Guard signals you to stop; all cyclists and drivers must stop.
• Understand and follow the posted speed limits, especially in school zones.
• Always check before turning at intersections.
• Remain stopped until all pedestrians and guard have cleared the crossing. It is the law.
• Do not drop students off in NO stopping and NO parking zones.
