The Latimer Lane School Safe Routes to School Committee is hosting Walk/Bike to School Day to celebrate
National Walk to School Day and International Walk to School Month. Students, parents, teachers, and staff are
encouraged to participate by walking or biking to school from home, or from one
of our twelve meeting locations where there will be parent chaperones to walk
or bike with students to school. Those
who live too far away or have conditions unsafe to bike or walk from home may
be driven to a meeting site. There
will be small prizes and a prize drawing for Latimer Lane participants.
Why Walk or Bike to School?
Walk/bike-to-school events promote physical activity, reduce traffic and pollution, help children develop safe pedestrian and biking skills, build community connections, help schools identify improvements needed for safer walking and biking, and gather support for improving walking and biking safety for the whole community.
