Dear Ms. Sweet:

Today I am writing this cover letter in response to your posting on JobBankUSA.com for a school crossing guard. I am interested in children, am dedicated to their safety, and have the ability to manage traffic during before and after school hours when children are walking to and from school and need to cross the street.

Are you free to get together any morning next week so you can see if I match what you are looking in the person you hire? Please call me at 456-777-8989 to let me know. I appreciate the opportunity to be considered as one of the crossing guards you plan to use during this school year.
