Keeping Our Children Safe

Keeping Our Children Safe

As you drive or walk the streets around Landrum Middle School and Ridgecrest Elementary School you will see two hard working and conscientious ladies in the morning and in the afternoon. These ladies keep our children safe as they cross the busy streets to their schools. The weather may be very hot or very cold or it may be raining very hard but the vigilant ladies are always on duty protecting our children as they cross the streets.

At Landrum Middle School you will see Rosie Zamarripa. Rosie has been the crossing guard for Landrum for 20 years. She also serves as crossing guard at Cedar Brook Elementary. She starts her day there at 6:30 and comes to Landrum at 7:30 in the morning and then she does both in the afternoon as well. She loves the kids, they are her life.


Ridgecrest students are protected by Denise Reyes as they cross the busy streets that run by this elementary school. She begins her day there at 7:00 in the morning and then returns in the afternoon from 2:30 to 4:00. Denise has worked in this position for 15 years and she too loves the kids. She says she has had the pleasure of watching many of them grow up and become adults in the years she has had this position.


The Ridgecrest Community is fortunate to have two such conscientious and loving ladies working diligently to protect our children each day of the school year.
