The County is requiring that the volunteers who serve as crossing guards on and off our property go through a seven (7) minute video training. After observing the video, you will be required to take a 20 question test that you would submit to Rochelle in our front office. This will clear you so that you may help us at any of the five crosswalk areas that we have at this point.
The link for this is: http://lms.dcsdk12.org/pd/course/view.php?id=201
The exam link is at the bottom. You must print the “Paper Assessment”, take the test and return it to Rochelle in the school office. Do not take the on-line assessment! Thank you, in advance for helping us keep our children safe as well as following the guidelines stated by Douglas County Traffic Engineers. Sincerely, Rochelle Monahan and Mike Munier
