Walking and Biking to School

Kids BackPacks

Young children on their way to school face a wide variety of decision-making situations and dangers. 

Here are a few basic safety tips to follow:

  • Follow all traffic signals and/or the crossing guard – even if there is no traffic coming.

  • Walk with a buddy.

  • Wear reflective material - it makes you more visible to street traffic.

  • Walk your bike through intersections.

  • Always use sidewalks and crosswalks where available

  • Before crossing any street – STOP – LOOK – LISTEN
