Each day, our crossing guards suit up and head out to the front lines to help the little PEDS get to and from school safely. BFF is so excited that Governor Rick Scott announced today, February 6, 2015, as Florida’s Crossing Guard Appreciation Day. Thank you, crossing guards, for all of your hard work and dedication.
