September 3, 2020 – City of Thunder Bay’s School Crossing Guards are encouraging students to walk and cycle to school, while maintaining physical distancing. Parents and students may consult the City’s Crossing Guards webpage at for a list and map of School Crossing Guard locations.

Students are asked to maintain physical distancing from the School Crossing Guards (when it is safe to do so) while waiting to cross the street.
For parents dropping off or picking up their children at the school, the City’s Crossing Guards remind parents to follow posted signage. Signs are in place to ensure that sight lines are not blocked for other parents, drivers or students.
Motorists in school areas are asked to drive with care and be aware of School Crossings. Proceed through the Crossing only when everyone - including the Crossing Guard - has left the roadway. This is the law, which promotes safety for everyone in school areas.
