Our school doesn't have one.  The city employs retired people to be crossing guards.

   Yes, my 11 year old DS is.  At our school, 5th and 6th graders are eligible, and my son was very excited to get to do it this year.  Our pediatrician's daughter did it last year, and I think that's part of the reason my son wanted to.  It works out well, since my DD is in chorus, so she has to be at school early, too, and they were able to do it on the same days.  He's very proud to be a part of it.  As an older kid at the school, he likes helping the younger kids, and got an award from a teacher (not his) for being kind to a younger child.  He even opens the door to the school for people, and he only has to make sure they are supposed to be going in.

At our elementary school, the entire 5th grade is responsible for safey patrol. They can opt out. They have to do safety patrol to qualify for the 5th grade trip at the end of the year. They help kids cross the street, keep kids orderly as they leave school, hold up bus number signs and help the little kids get to the bus. They also help in the lunchroom at lunchtime and put up/take down the flags. I'm not sure that my son really likes it, but he wants to go on the trip.

My oldest is in sixth grade, this is his second year as a safety patrol.  In our district the safety patrol kids are eligible to go on a 5 day trip to South Dakota (Mt. Rushmore, The Badlands, etc.)  Rem willbe going in May and is super excited! :)
