2017- Happy New Year- 2017
January is a perfect time to try walking school….it’s good for both personal and community health and safety.
Find your best route, invite a friend and pick a day. It’s that easy!!
Walking and biking is a fantastic way to get to school and get around town. With so many different kinds of road users sharing the roads, we need to have a few rules to keep us all safe and happy when we use the streets and sidewalks. Discussing these rules with your may help keep your family members safe!
- Keep your EYES and EARS OPEN, know what’s going on around you.
- Cross the street at the corner, or at a crosswalk if there is one, and obey all traffic signals.
- Look left, right, left again, AND behind before crossing. Continue looking all ways until you reach the other side.
- If there is traffic, before starting to cross, make eye contact with the driver/s so they see you and understand your intention. 5. Walk on a sidewalk. If there is no sidewalk, walk on the left side of the street, facing oncoming traffic.
A Walking School Bus makes the trip fun, safe and delivers students on time!
