We Love our Crossing Guards!

This is Crossing Guard Appreciation Week and the City of Decatur showed our 38 crossing guards some love!

The City held a breakfast for them this morning where they were recognized with certificates and a gift. Several schools also honored their crossing guards this morning with flowers and cards.

Next time you have a crossing guard to help you cross the street be sure to tell them how much you appreciate them! They are out early in the morning in all kinds of weather, then return mid afternoon and keep a smile on their face as they help children travel to and from school safely.

It’s Crossing Guard Appreciation Week!


Be sure to say “Thank You” to our wonderful City of Decatur Crossing Guards this week. Consider having your child made them a card, bring a flower, or simply say Thank You! as they cross the street.

Our Crossing Guards brave all types of weather to keep our children safe as they walk and bike to school. Let’s show them how much they are appreciated!
