Instead they lined the front lawn and applauded a retiring crossing guard for the years of smiles and encouragement he’s given them.

Chuck Busse showed up for his last day Friday, with his yellow vest and red stop sign in hand. Instead of helping students cross the street, though, the student body lined up to give him a final fist bump before heading home.

Principal Don Epps orchestrated the event for “our beloved @RoysterProud crossing guard,” Chuck Busse.

“Our kids were blessed to start and end every day with a Mr. Busse smile and fist bump,” Epps said.

“Stay in school,” were his parting words to several of the students gathered around him.

Busse will continue to work with school children, but in a different capacity. He plans to be a bus rider on the preschool bus for Chanute Public Schools.
