Please Be a Temporary Crossing Guard In the Township of Woolwich

A supervised school crossing is one where an adult is appointed to serve as a Crossing Guard to help students and parents cross a street near the school. The Township of Woolwich has 8 supervised school crossings.

The dedication of our Crossing Guards is the backbone of our successful Crossing Guard program and we support them in all ways possible. One way we do that is to make sure the Crossing Guards can take time off if needed. We do this by keeping a roster of names of individuals who are willing to occasionally serve as Spare Crossing Guards to cover absences. Our roster of Spare Crossing Guards has grown short and we are looking for more people to assist with the program.

We have five Crossing Guards covering three school crossings in Elmira, two Crossing Guards for the school crossing in Conestogo and one Crossing Guard serving in each of Breslau, St. Jacobs, and Maryhill. The Township is seeking community-minded individuals with flexible schedules to work periodically during the school year. Ideal candidates are at least 18 years old, able to work in all types of weather conditions, with access to transportation. It is essential that candidates enjoy working with children. Previous experience working with students is an asset but not required.

As a Spare Crossing Guard, you can choose when and where you work. If called upon, you may accept or decline an offered shift. Each shift accepted by a Spare Crossing Guard involves a 30-minute duty time either before or after school. Mileage is paid when the crossing is not local to you and all training and equipment is provided. A police background check is a condition of employment to ensure student safety.

If you are interested or want more information, please call Enforcement Services at 519-669-6009 or email kfahey@woolwich.ca. Please help us keep our Crossing Guard Program strong by serving as a Spare Crossing Guard.
