To the Editor,
There was a crossing guard and cross walk on Highway 12. When the highway got repaired they did not paint a new cross walk, and the crossing guard was taken away. Having a cross walk makes a safer environment for the whole community and the crossing guard ensures the students’ safety.
There should be a new cross walk put in place, and a crossing guard would also be beneficial.

In the past there was a crossing guard at Highway 12 and Cragg Road. A year ago the crossing guard was removed. I believe a crossing guard should be returned to that location.
Firstly, the cars on Highway 12 go very fast and there is a local school that has chhildren crossing the road.
In addition, the elderly people are crossing the road to go to church and other stores. Crossing lines would slow down drivers.
Furthermore the other schools in the area have crossing guards therefore Greenbank and Epsom should have one too.
I think that the crossing guards should be put back.

I think we should put a crossing by Highway 12. If we don't have a crossing guard kids are in danger. When there isn’t a crossing guard there is a higher chance of kids getting hit.
S.A. Cawker just got their crossing guard, why can’t we get it? When our road is busier than their road.
There is a curve in the road, kids can’t see the cars coming around the corner and the can’t see the kids.
I think we should have a crossing guard, before and after school. What about you?

Firstly, we want to make sure that kids can cross the road safely to and from school.
In addition, there are a lot of big trucks that go fast and it is hard to stop quickly if there is a child on the road. Furthermore, crossing guards are role models for kids, and the kids will learn to cross the road safely.
In conclusion, it would be a benefit in our community to have a crossing guard.
