The crossing guard's job is to make sure students get to the other side of the road safely. Your job is to stop, outside of the crosswalk, until the roadway is clear. Let's work together to protect everyone's kids and to help A2 Be Safe. Everywhere+Everyone+Every Day. #a2besafe www.a2gov.org/a2besafe

Maybe they're not actually your kids, but it's still your job to make sure they get to the other side of the street safely. Watch for the crossing guard. Stop at the crosswalk. Go when it's all clear. And help #A2BeSafe Everywhere+Everyone+EveryDay www.a2gov.org/a2besafe
