SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Elementary school student crossing guards were back “on the job” at Commodore Sloat Elementary School in San Francisco on Monday, following a more than three year hiatus.
More than 20 young elementary students on Monday held stop signs and directed traffic along Darien Way under the supervision of a police officer. The program will also be implemented at Alice Fong Yu Alternative School and Lakeshore Elementary School.READ MORE: Marin County Judge Tentatively Rejects Cutting Inmate Crowding at San Quentin
It’s a twist on an old icon, said Commodore Sloat Principal Greg John, with kids holding the stop signs instead of adults. “We observed that when children were out here doing crossing guard work, grown-ups behave better,” he said.
