School crossings service reopen for Term 4 2020
Council's school crossings service resume on Monday 12 October to support students returning to school. School crossing hours of operation will remain the same as our pre-COVID-19 service.
Our School Crossings Supervisors are excited to re-engage with the school community. To ensure that we continue to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Council will make sure:
School Crossings Supervisors have extra personal protective equipment (PPE). This is to ensure their own safety and that of the school children. PPE will include face masks, hand sanitiser and face shields (if staff have a medical exemption from wearing a face mask).
School Crossings Supervisors will wear disposable gloves for school crossings at pedestrian lights. They will also have rubbish bags to dispose of the gloves at the end of each shift.
We also encourage your students and the school community to follow social distancing measures at our school crossings.
Council will continue to track the advice of the Department of Education. Their advice will inform decisions for operations for the rest of Term 4.
