October is International Walk to School Month, and Latimer Lane School is celebrating by hosting Walk/Bike to School Day on Wed., Oct. 2. Students will be walking/biking to school from their homes or neighborhood meeting locations from which parent chaperones will walk or bike with the students to school. Police assistance will be available at key locations including Latimer Lane at the rail trail parking lot, and the intersection of Old Meadow Plain and Red Stone Drive. As always, but especially on Walk/Bike to School Day, please DRIVE WITH CARE while students are traveling to and from school (7:30-8:30 AM; 2:45-3:45 PM). Walk/bike-to-school-day events are part of the national Safe Routes to School initiative dedicated to improving conditions around schools so that more children can safely walk and bike to school, promoting healthy lifestyles and a healthy earth.
