CHURUBUSCO — Starting Feb. 8 there are some changes for students and families in Churubusco.

There will no longer be a crossing guard at the area of Short Street and SR 205 as decided by the Town of Churubusco and the police department.

“After months of searching for a replacement to fill the crossing guard position, the Town of Churubusco and Churubusco Police Department will no longer be providing this service,” read a recent press release.

The police department says it will continue to search for ways to make crossing safer for students and other members of the community.

For now, though, town officials are encouraging parents to make other arrangements for students who cross the highway while going to school and returning home.

Those with questions can reach out to the Town Marshal Dustin Papenbrock for more information by emailing
