Bicycle Safely to School

crossing to schoolParents, please help your children to bicycle safely to school by following this simple rule:

When children and parents approach a crosswalk (crossing guard present) on a bicycle they should dismount and walk across the street. If they stay on their bikes they will be considered a vehicle and they will have to obey all traffic laws, such as stopping at stop signs, yielding, riding with traffic, etc. This is for the safety of both the children and the guard.

We look forward to working with all the schools this year  through the Safe Routes to School Program. All the schools have a school Champion. Let them know if you are interested in serving ont he SRTS committee and/or volunteering to help with events or walking with children in the Walking School Buses. For more info on SRTS click here.
