Beginning Feb. 24, Parachute and FedEx Express Canada are accepting nominations for Canada’s favourite crossing guards.
In light of current school closures in effect due to public health directives to slow the spread of the Covid-19 virus, Parachute and its partner Fed Ex Express have extended the deadline for submissions for Canada’s Favourite Crossing Guard through to fall 2020. Even though school’s out, this is something fun to do with the kids while they’re at home! Let’s recognize those who make an impact.
Do you know a crossing guard who has made an impact in your community?
Parachute’s search for Canada’s favourite crossing guard continues this year!
Tell us about your favourite crossing guard:
- How have they kept kids safe?
- Why are they a good role model?
- Remember to attach photos of your crossing guard in action!
