The crossing guards that have help the City of Waukesha and Wauwatosa get students safety to school so far this school year may not be there anymore.
In a Facebook post Sunday, the School District of Waukesha says they got word from Waukesha Police Sunday that the company currently contacted to provide crossing guards plans to go out of business, and their workers may not be on the job as early as Monday.
The district says they want parents and guardians to know this so that they can change their transportation plans prior to the start of a new school week.
They add police are working to find another company to supply crossing guards. In the meantime, they and the district will work together to cover as many of the positions as possible.
In Wauwatosa, the city’s website is advertising the need for new crossing guards after the company they have been using, Wisconsin Personal Protection Services, may have gone out of business this past weekend.
The city says they will be able to cover all but five of the 34 locations where crossing guards work. Those location are:
– West Blue Mound Road & N 70th Street
– West Blue Mound Road & N 112th Street
– West Center Street & N 74th Street
– West Center Street & N 120th Street
– North Glenview Avenue & Saint Jude Court
