Safe Routes to School

Walking Wednesdays

Walking Wednesdays will resume in the fall.

The following meet-up locations are places where students and parents can meet and then walk together in a group. All locations, except for the TVF&R location, have given permission to use their parking lot for those who wish to drive part of the way to school and then walk the rest.

  • All locations are not staffed by school staff or assigned volunteers; instead please make sure your student knows the route or walk with them up to school.

We suggest you work out a plan with other parents and tradeoff who walks with the students on which day. The groups should leave the meet-up locations with enough time to ensure everyone gets to school on time.

You do not need to go to one of the meet-up spots to participate; everyone can be a part of the Walk and Bike to School Days!
