Ch 12: NCS parents worry about crossing guard cuts
Superintendent Rob Amodio told Channel 12 he’s been able so far to recruit 3 volunteer crossing guards and some teachers, “and we’re providing training, vests, stop signs, so we have people that are very dedicated,” but admits he could use four times the help.
That help is coming in the form of resident Charlie Jones, who says he's got family and friends working to help him with a fundraiser cook out. "If everyone around here would drop a dollar we'd have it covered." He says if parents want to join in the fundraiser to try to get paid guards ...he'd contact some restaurants about food donations but thinks the long term solution will be getting more parents to volunteer.
A Facebook page is set up for the fundraiser called "For the safety of all our children." Parents who want to be volunteer crossing guards should contact the NCS school board office.
