LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — With the start of elementary school classes fast approaching March 1, dedicated individuals are urgently needed to serve as paid elementary school crossing guards across the Las Vegas Valley.
If you are interested in this rewarding part-time work, please call All City Management Services at (702) 675-3135 or visit https://acmssafety.com/crossing-guards/. 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 typically work about an hour in the morning around 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and an hour in the afternoon around 2 to 3:30 p.m. All equipment including face masks is provided along with training. Successful applicants must be 18 years old, pass an agility and balance assessment, and complete a criminal background check.
“Crossing guards play a critical role in public safety as we reopen our schools,” said Commissioner Michael Naft. “We need the community to step up now more than ever and sign up to become crossing guards.”
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. Crossing guards are often able to work close to where they live.
The return rate for the start of school March 1 is currently about 40%, All City Management Services representatives said. In a normal year, the return rate for crossing guards might be 70 to 80 percent. 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.
