Child Health Equity Network
Help San Francisco students arrive at school energized and ready to learn!
International Walk & Roll to School Day is celebrated in 40 countries and at schools all over San Francisco. The event is open to all schools, public and private. Last year, 76 schools and over 11,000 elementary school students participated — this year our goal is 100 schools!
- Parents can sign up to pledge to walk at bit.ly/WalktoSchool2018
- Schools can register to participate at http://bit.ly/RegisterWalktoSchool
Studies show that children who walk to school enjoy health benefits and academic advantages, as well as getting more quality bonding time with parents. Plus, walking to school gives children a sense of accomplishment, independence, and self-confidence.
However, today, although 40% of San Francisco elementary school students live within walking distance of school, only 27% of students actually walk. The Safe Routes to School Partnership is working to remove the barriers and change that. We’re encouraging families to get started on Walk & Roll to School Day, then keep walking as often as possible!
Join the fun on October 10!
Questions? Email Vernon Haney at Walk SF at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Who arrives at school awake, alert, and ready to learn? Biking and walking children! Teachers love it when children are active before school. Walking, biking, rolling or taking transit together also builds community for both children and adults.
The SF Bicycle Coalition invites families that enjoyed biking together this summer to keep up your healthy habit by biking to school. Every SFUSD school has bike racks where your children can safely park their bikes. Parents who bike can continue on your way. Others can return home or go back to the car, or hop on transit.
Fall is a great time for parents and volunteers to get involved in school activities to support your children. Safe Routes to School works with public schools throughout the year, helping parents organize "bike trains", "walking school buses" and other events. New neighborhood task forces bring together parents and caregivers to plan events, share school transportation-related concerns and directly address representatives of city agencies.
Please contact our Family and Schools program staff to find out more. Information is also available in Chinese and Spanish.
