Published On: November 6th, 2020

Safe Routes to School is a movement that aims to make it safer and easier for students to walk or roll to and from school, improving the health and well-being of people of all races, income levels, and abilities, and building healthy, thriving communities for everyone.

Safe Routes to School events are planned for individual school communities year-round, see the schedule below. You do not need to sign up in advance to participate. Simply walk or bike to and from school on the event date and stop by the Safe Routes to School Table for a participation gift. Family members are encouraged to walk with their children. Safe Routes to School Walk or Bike events will be canceled for inclement weather. For more information, contact Mark Tisone, Safe Routes to School Coordinator.

Why walk or bike to school?

  • Get fit together as a family.
  • Catch up with your kids during the walk.
  • Help the environment by leaving the car at home.
  • Save money and buy less gas.

December 14-23 2020 Virtual Holiday Walk

Safe Routes to School encourages everyone to get outside for a walk this holiday season— through the neighborhood, along a walking path or even around the house. Remember to follow all safety guidelines including being alert, walking facing traffic and looking both ways before crossing streets. Invite members of your household to join you or organize a socially distanced walk with friends and neighbors.

Show us your walk by posting a picture or video on social media and tagging #WeAreWJCC #wjccschoolssrtsvirtualwalk and your school.
