Changes in School Crossing Guard Schedules
Date: August 29, 2017
Time: 1:37 PM

August 29, 2017 – Effective this September at the start of the 2017/2018 school year, changes will be implemented to the school crossing guard schedules, including the removal of lunch time services for many schools.

Since schools have two nutrition breaks instead of the single traditional lunch hour, crossing guards are no longer needed at that time. The crossing guards will now have extended time in the morning and evening, which allows more coverage for students and parents crossing earlier and later in day.

All schools were informed of the changes in service schedules. 

Crossings that will continue lunch services at the following locations:

North Side
Junot Avenue and Windsor Street – St.Pius X and Algonquin School 
River Street and Madeline Street – St.Bernard School 
Huron Avenue at Vance Chapman School
Huron Avenue and Shuniah Street – Vance Chapman School 
Leslie Avenue and Arundel Street – Claude Garton School 

South Side 
Redwood Avenue and University Drive – St.Vincent School 
Brown Street and Begin Street – Westmount School 
Edward Street and Ridgeway Street – Westmount School 
Vickers and Cumming Street – McKellar Park School 
Walsh Street and Tarbutt Street – Hyde Park and Kingsway School 
Empire Avenue and Tarbutt Street – Hyde Park and Kingsway School
