Crossing Guards

The Transportation Services Department of the City of Burlington provides school crossing guards at Council approved locations. School crossing guards are provided at these designated locations for the safety of Burlington's school children, not convenience.

School crossing guards are legally permitted to stop traffic and assist 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 school crossing guard are safely off the road and has lowered their stop sign.

School crossing guards are dedicated individuals who work in the heat, cold, rain and snow to help children to and from school. Motorists are asked to be aware of school crossing areas and obey the school crossing guards.

Become a School Crossing Guard

The City of Burlington welcomes your interest in becoming a School Crossing Guard.  You will enjoy regular contact with students and the public and be able to work Monday-Friday (holiday’s exempted) between the hours of 7:50 – 9:30 am and 2:45 – 4:30 pm. You are able to work outdoors in all weather conditions, standing and walking throughout the shift. You are responsible for helping students safely cross busy roads, at all times obeying established traffic procedures and safety regulations.

This is a fine opportunity for a sociable, safety-minded individual who requires little direct supervision. Training is provided.  

If you would like to be a school crossing guard, please call the School Crossing Guard Supervisor on 905-335-0172 for more information.
