Walking or Cycling to School

Walking or Cycling to School

As we start the 2018-2019 school year, we would like to remind and encourage families to consider walking or cycling with children to and from school. There are many benefits to walking and cycling to school. It:

Improves student academic performance by making children more alert and better prepared to learn.
Contributes to the daily goal of 60 minutes of moderate or vigorous activity for children, improving their health and overall fitness.
Reduces traffic congestion and improves safety for everyone in school zones.
Promotes life-long habits that foster independence and active lifestyles, preparing children for their future.
For those who can’t walk or cycle to school every day, choosing active travel once, twice or a few days a week can still provide benefits. You can also consider parking a block away from the school and walking the rest of the way. Include active travel as part of your daily routine!
