first_imgWHITTIER – Crossing guards tasked with overseeing the mid-day release of kindergartners in half-day programs will no longer be in place at 14 intersections come Nov. 1, school officials said Friday. In a city report, officials said the crossing-guard eliminations would not affect public safety because schools already have a policy in place to protect kindergartners during the mid-day school-release time, which ranges from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. The motion to cut the city-funded crossing guards was approved at the City Council’s last meeting on Sept. 25.
