Crossing guards needed for Menlo Park elementary schools
Menlo Park is recruiting 16 crossing guards to help students who walk and bike across busy streets/intersections to get to school.
The Safe Routes to School program team worked over the summer to develop a citywide crossing guard program serving the three elementary school districts.
These extra crossing guard locations will add to existing crossing guard programs, creating a wider network of safe corridors for students and their families.
The citywide crossing guard program is a collaboration between:
-City of Menlo Park Safe Routes to School program
-Los Lomitas Elementary School District
-Menlo Park City School District
-Ravenswood City School District
Facebook is funding this effort for an initial 5-year term, with a 5-year extension in the future.
For the Los Lomitas School District, and Menlo Park City School District apply online or call 800-540-9290; for Ravenswood School District, call 650-444-0359 to reach Delma Camacho, RCSD coordinator.
