December 1, 2014: Outstanding Crossing Guard Nominations Open
Does your crossing guard know the name of every student on their route? Does your crossing guard get up before dawn to make sure each student has assistance to cross the street on their way to school? The Virginia Safe Routes to School program wants to celebrate crossing guards who make a difference in Virginia’s communities. The nomination period for Outstanding Crossing Guard of the Year 2014 will begin December 1, 2014 and run through January 19, 2015. Click here to submit your nomination.

February 11, 2015: Crossing Guard Appreciation Day
Crossing Guard Appreciation Day is a statewide event devoted to saying thank you to those who help students cross the street safely on their way to and from school.
While the Virginia SRTS Program has designated the second Wednesday of February as Crossing Guard Appreciation Day, we encourage schools and communities to plan their own Crossing Guard Appreciation Day on any day that works for them to recognize the valuable service crossing guards provide to make safe routes to school a reality.
The Virginia Safe Routes to School Newsletter is a great way to keep abreast of the latest SRTS developments in Virginia.
Each newsletter includes a calendar of upcoming events and features articles addressing such issues as SRTS grant opportunities and SRTS program implementation.
