Five Crossing Guards serve the neighborhood around Thomas Jefferson ES. The crossing guards are employees of the Bethlehem City Police Department. Many of Thomas Jefferson’s students walk to and from school, and the crossing guards keep them safe at some of North Bethlehem’s busiest intersections. Some of the guards also cross students from Northeast MS and other local schools. They know many of the students by name, and with almost 95 years of combined experience, they know some of the students’ parents and grandparents too.
