In brief

40 crossing guards needed

Forty crossing guard positions paying $15 per day during the school year are available at schools throughout the Oklahoma City metro. There are openings at 27 schools in Oklahoma City, Moore, Putnam City and Edmond, said Oklahoma City police Capt. Don Martin. Applicants must pass a background check and a drug/health screening in order to be considered for the position. Duties include directing traffic with a hand-held “Stop” sign and using hand signals. Crossing guards will be close to moving traffic and must be able to work on hot, cold and rainy days, and be able to see and hear oncoming traffic. New hires usually are placed at schools near where they live, Martin said. Interested individuals can apply with the Oklahoma City Personnel Department, 420 W Main St., Suite 110.
