In what is becoming a tradition on Walk&Bike to School Day, the Montclair Police Dept. Traffic Bureau and Bike&Walk Montclair are collaborating to make the “pop-up” bike lane show what “safe routes” for biking might actually feel like on Montclair streets.
7, a record number of Brevard Schools will participate in global Walk to School Day.
Last year, more than a hundred kids from Manzanita took place in the event. Students at Dennis Lab School will be carrying banners and form a “walking school bus” leading to school at 8:00 am on October 7. The percentage of students walking and bicycling to school declined from 48 percent in1969 to 13 percent in 2009. In 2014, students and parents from more than 4,000 USA schools joined millions of Walk to School Day participants worldwide. All Bartlesville public schools, except Bartlesville High School, will be participating. Once at school, the students will have a chance to check out one of Scott’s racecars that will be on display.
Volunteers from the city of Bartlesville, state lawmakers and others will greet students as they arrive at participating schools. Scott Lagassee comes to us through the Alert Today Alive Tomorrow Program, a focused initiative by the Florida Department of Transportation to increase safety and awareness for bicyclists and pedestrians.
Worldwide Walk to School Day is on Wednesday, and for those who plan to leave the auto at home, the safest walking or biking route has been mapped for each elementary and middle school in the district.
