Description and Service Details
Description (Service) Role of Crossing Guards 
* School crossing guards play an important role in the lives of children.  
* The mandate of the program is to ensure elementary school children cross streets safely as they walk to and from school.  
* These men and women provide an excellent community service and are dedicated individuals who work in heat, cold, rain and snow.  
* There are approximately 75 school crossing guards at designated locations throughout the City of Windsor for the safety of children, not convenience. 
Stopping Traffic  
* School crossing guards are legally permitted to stop traffic and assist elementary school children across the street by raising their stop sign.  
* All vehicles are required to come to a complete stop and remain stopped until the children and crossing guard are safely off the road and have lowered their stop sign.  
* Motorists are asked to be aware of school crossing areas and obey the school crossing guards. 
To Apply for Employment 
* If you are interested in obtaining further information, please contact Mary DiMenna, Crossing Guard Coordinator at (519) 255-6247 ext. 6104 or by email at 
To Request a Crossing Guard 
The population in a city as large as Windsor changes constantly. As well, student population changes from year to year. The request to place a new crossing guard or relocate an existing one must be coordinated by school board representatives requiring the guard placement.
