Celebrate International Walk to School Day
Join the City and take steps toward a safe and happy school year and celebrate International Walk to School Day!
Thousands of students will soon say goodbye to summer and head back into the classroom. Healthy RC’s Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program will be there for another school year of working in partnership to help everyone gets there safely.
Rancho Cucamonga students, parents, teachers, and City leaders will join others around the globe to celebrate International Walk to School Day on October 4, 2017. Biking and walking embody the Healthy RC goal of a robust, fit Rancho Cucamonga where residents pursue more active lifestyles. Students who travel busy roads face a greater potential for danger. The Safe Routes to School promotes safety for students, whether they walk or ride to school. Program staff works to make sure that students and families get life-saving lessons that keep them safe.
Safe Routes to School encourages family members to work together on safety. For example, the program teaches cyclists and pedestrians to stop, look, and listen before crossing an intersection. Bicyclists learn about helmet requirements, keeping eyes and ears open, and hands on handlebars, except when signaling.
