Motorists should be on the look out for stop signs on school buses and near schools where crossing guards help students cross safely.
About 170 school crossing guards spent hours in training over the weekend in preparation for the 2009-2010 school year.

On Thursday and Friday returning crossing guards received a four-hour block of 'refresher' training in a classroom setting. On Saturday, new crossing guards received an eight-hour block of instruction.

School crossing guard supervisor, Sharon Lough, said that the training for the new crossing guards not only covered the in-classroom component, but also required the guards to practice and demonstrate the duties they will be performing on the job once the school year begins. 

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office adheres to the training standards of the Florida Department of Transportation.

Of the 170 crossing guards, 16 are new hires.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office Crossing Guard Program covers 34 elementary schools, 11 middle schools and one high school within unincorporated areas of the county, as well as in several contract cities.

For more information, please contact the Sheriff's Public Information Office at 727-582-6221.
