Welcome to W.J. Baird Public!

Principal: Mr. B. Vermeersch

Municipal Adult Crossing Guard Service terminated effective November 30, 2016
The Municipality of Chatham-Kent terminated its Adult Crossing Guard Services effective November 30, 2016. In the interest of student safety, the Lambton Kent District School Board encourages all parents to review traffic safety procedures with children to ensure safe travel to and from school. As the Municipal-run adult crossing guard program has now ended, the LKDSB reminds parents and community members that any adult volunteers assisting students with crossing the street are not associated with the LKDSB, nor the Municipality. For more information, please visit the Municipality of Chatham-Kent website.
