HOW WILL YOU GET TO SCHOOL THIS YEAR?
School is going to look different this year. Everyone benefits when students walk, bike and roll to school. Walking and rolling is a chance for a kid to ‘be a kid’ in a time of a lot of change and new routineswhile supporting the mental and physical health of our students. Neighbors get to reconnect with one another. Drivers expect to see children walking and biking and drive slower and are more alert. Lastly, there is less congestion around schools during arrival and dismissal times creating quieter streets.
Below are some flexible approaches for students to arrive at school safely, on-time and ready to learn.
