Glen Rock NJ, on the afternoon of June 24, 2021, following the last day of the school year, Glen Rock’s Crossing Guards were honored at a luncheon courtesy of Victor Quinn at the Glen Rock Inn, a long-standing tradition.
Adult school crossing guards, first established in Glen Rock during the early 1950’s, play an important role in the lives of our school children. They help them safely cross the street at key locations.

During the 2020 – 2021 school year each of Glen Rock’s crossing guards worked an unprecedented number of hours to accommodate our schools’ hybrid schedule throughout the pandemic. This year, Glen Rock employed a record 31 school crossing guards deployed to 21 different locations during four different intervals each day, often adjusting their hours with little notice. These guards, many of them senior citizens, showed up on their posts every day even as Covid-19 cases increased throughout the nation.
Crossing Guard Manager Jennette Montgomery, joined by Councilmember and Public Safety liaison Mary Barchetto and Chief Dean Ackermann, presented retiring School Crossing Guard Brian Vitting with a certificate of commendation honoring his years of service to the school children of Glen Rock.

  1. Very nice

  2. It would be nice if the Village of Ridgewood would do that for the crossing guards in Ridgewood. Maybe give them a pizza party,
