Keeping Children Safe at Busy Crossings
Abbotsford Community Services has chosen to discontinue our service contract for the Crossing Guard program in the Abbosford School District effective December 21st 2018. Our decision was not taken lightly and is the result of a carefully thought-out process to make sure our programs are fulfilling our agency’s vision of ensuring “Justice, opportunities and equitable access for all.”
Starting in 2019, the Crossing Guards program will be administered entirely by the Abbotsford School District. We have greatly appreciated working alongside the School District in providing this valuable service of helping children get to school safely over the last 38 years.
For more information about the crossing guards please contact:
Manager of Transportation at the Abbotsford School District

For job posting please visit the Abbotsford School District Careers page.
Please continue to direct your community traffic safety concerns to the City of Abbotsford or the Abbotsford Police Department.
