Los Gatos Union School District

Safe Routes to School

 

Right From the Start – Back to School with SR2S

 

It is never too early to begin building healthy and safe habits. Start the first day, August 17th, walking, riding or carpooling to school. Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Safe Routes to School will greet students and families that day with Walk and Roll Maps along with red wristbands as a reminder to walk and roll each day. Wear your wristband to show your support of SR2S and the children in our community.

 

We encourage parents to model safety around all schools in our community. These actions align with Project Cornerstone Asset #14 Adult Role Models – Parents and other adults model positive, responsible behavior. It shows our students that we care about their safety.

  • Consider carpooling with neighbors and friends
  • Park within a ½ mile radius of school and walk to campus
  • Follow the direction of staff in drive through zones
  • Wear a helmet when riding a bike
  • Show children the importance of following the direction of the crossing guards.
  • Volunteer at a SR2S event
  • Sign a Driver Contract and pledge safe driving around schools.  Complete the form attached and return it to your school office or the district office.

 

Volunteers are always welcome. Contact me at kbriones@lgusd.org for information. I look forward to another walking and rolling year.

 

Happy Walking,
