Crossing Guard Week

This week has been declared Wisconsin Adult School Crossing Guard Recognition Week.

The Richland Center Police Department and Richland School District would like to recognize Bill Hall for his dedicated service as the Adult School Crossing Guard at Jefferson Elementary School. Faithfully serving morning and night in a variety of weather conditions, Hall and other Adult School Crossing Guards provide an invaluable service in helping to ensure the safe passage of our youngest, most vulnerable pedestrians – children – as they journey to and from school. The duties of an Adult School Crossing Guard also help reinforce in the minds of the young people they assist the importance of traffic-hazard identification and safe street-crossing behavior, for times when an adult is not present to assist them.
