Crossing guards get new tool to guide kids during coronavirus: Handheld sirens (Tampa Bay Times)

Tampa Bay Times: Crossing guards get new tool to guide kids during coronavirus: Handheld sirens. “This school year, though, [school crossing guard Ellen] Cipriani can’t identify students’ faces when they’re hidden behind the masks that Cipriani and the students are required to wear to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Nor can she blow the silver whistle she has used since she first trained as a crossing guard with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office in September 2011. So the Sheriff’s Office has handed Cipriani and the county’s 369 crossing guards a new tool to help keep kids safe heading to and from school — electronic, handheld sirens.”
