SCHOOL CROSSING GUARDS
The Town of Trophy Club has provided School Crossing Guards since the 2011-12 School Year. We determined that there was a significant need for this service and trained and staffed these positions in order to address this need. Crossing Guards are assigned to cross walks where our school children cross our busiest streets. School Crossing Guards are equipped with signs and identifying clothing and motorists are required to obey the Crossing Guards like they would obey a peace officer. Remember, if a Crossing Guard is in the cross walk, you are required to stop whether children are present or not.
