CENTRAL ILLINOIS — Wednesday is National Crossing Guard Appreciation Day!
Schools around the area are recognizing their workers and reminding others of the important job of getting kids to school safely.
But, they’re not just traffic conductors. They’re also often the first friendly face students see as they start their day.
Urbana crossing guards got a free breakfast in honor of the day.
So, make sure when you see a crossing guard today, say thanks and obey their stop signs everyday!
