Safe Routes to Schools

From Seattle Neighborhood Greenways

“At Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, we believe that every child deserves to be able to walk or bike to school safely and comfortably. This year, we are working to change Seattle School District policies and programs so that helping students walk and bike to school goes from an afterthought to a priority.

Join us to discuss how we can work together this year to get kids safely to and from school!

Seattle Neighborhood Greenways is pushing for systemic solutions to help improve the Safe Routes to School program citywide:
Increase funding for safe streets near schools (crosswalks, sidewalks, speed humps, etc.)
Reform transportation planning when schools are refurbished or rebuilt
Improve programs such as the School Crossing Guard program, which currently has vacant positions at one in three schools, and Walking School Bus and Biking School Bus programs
Connect with individual school communities and champion community-identified priorities
Help us brainstorm, draft plans, and identify next steps for this important campaign:
Safe Routes to School for Seattle
We unfortunately won’t have child care for this event, but kids are welcome and we will have some coloring and games available.
Seattle Neighborhood Greenways is powered by people like you. If you want to help our Seattle schoolkids get safely to and from school on by walking, rolling, or biking, we need you there! If you’re interested in helping out but unable to attend the meeting, email Clara@SeattleGreenways.org or Click here to Join the Campaign!
I hope to see you there!
Be well,
Clara
