Waverley/Meadow intersection without crossing guards

Original post made by JLS Parent, JLS Middle School, on May 14, 2010

Waverley/Meadow, like Middlefield/Embarcadero, intersections have specialized all way stop red lights which the crossing guards enable when school is starting/ending. If we lose crossing guards, does this mean that we lose these all way stop red lights also? This would make these two intersections extremely dangerous due to the very heavy pedestrian usage at these times? This is something that must be clarified.

Here's a suggestion: What if the police, firefighters and city employees step up and sponsor the crossing guard program so that it can continue. All the unions feel so entitled to every last perk and refuse to voluntarily participate in any cost cuts, so how about stepping up and giving back something to the kids of the families who will be financing their demands? At the very least it will be a good PR move for the unions.
