Staying Warm As A Crossing Guard

Posted:

Those making sure kids make it home safe from school are forced to brave the cold, no matter how miserable it is.

Amanda Jacob is a crossing guard at Centennial Elementary in Bismarck, her along with other crossing guards are making sure they wear plenty of layers to keep warm.

"It's cold it's really cold, you see some of these kids with just their little hats on and stuff and I mean as long as my face or head is covered and stuff I'm ok," Amanda Jocob said.

"It's kind of miserable with the wind, it's a bite to your face especially if you're not covered up, but I'm pretty warm in what I have on, except for my face," Allison Seifert said.

These cold temperatures makes their job even more important, to make sure kids get home quick and stay out of the cold.

"Yep we still have to come out and make sure the kids get across and to their vehicle safe and sound or home, and make sure they get there fast because it's too cold to stand out and play today," Seifert said.

Crossing Guards at Centennial spend about 20 minutes outside, making sure kids cross the streets safely.
