Crossing Guards Still Urgently Needed for Start of School March 1

            With local public schools opening up in little more than a week, there is still an urgent need for crossing guards. Dedicated individuals who wish to serve in these paid positions should email their name and phone number to LasVegasJobs@TheCrossingGuardCompany.com. The company that contracts with local entities to provide crossing guard services will then respond by phone with details about the position and schedule interested candidates at coordinated hiring events at local parks throughout the area where management will conduct interviews and hire candidates.

            About 675 crossing guards are needed to serve at 430 intersections in unincorporated Clark County, Las Vegas and North Las Vegas. Guards are also needed at 148 locations across Henderson. A large percentage of positions remains to be filled, according to representatives of All City Management Services, which contracts with local governments to provide school crossing guards.
           
            Crossing guards are often able to work close to where they live. Officials say they need those who are interested in serving their communities and protecting our youth to apply as soon as possible so that all school crosswalks can be staffed by the start of classes March 1. Crossing guards are paid $15 per hour in unincorporated Clark County, Las Vegas and North Las Vegas. Guards are also being sought to serve in Henderson.

            School hours vary across the valley, but crossing guards work an hour in the morning and an hour in the afternoon. All equipment including a reusable face mask is provided along with training. Successful applicants must be 18 years old, pass an agility and balance assessment, and must be able to obtain fingerprinting as well as a fee-based copy of Nevada Criminal History Records.
