Fiona, Mr. Galligan replied to an email from Kate Belding (kate@belding.com) that you will find interesting..she can forward it to you..essentially, Mr. Galligan feels we can walk our own kids to school like his parents used to.


Keep in mind, Rosaline, that people like to live in Burlingame because of all those churches on El Camino Real. ;)
This is good news for the kids attempting to dodge traffic on their way to school as most of them will get a cross.
Jewish ones will get a star.

On a more serious note: What ever became of the idea that certain school kids were awarded the 'privilege' of being a public servant and wearing a crossing guard sash and cap and was responsible for a couple of days a week? I went to schools around here (right after they installed indoor plumbing, actually...) and this was quite a normal thing. It was something kids earned by doing well in classes.
We used to have two kids per intersection.

I too was a crossing guard in 5th grade in Massachusetts due to my good grades, but I never dealt with anything llike the hustle and bustle of the cellphone toting maniacs that drive our streets today. My favorite bumper sticker is "Hang up and drive".
