October is walk to school month and today October 5th is walk to school day.
The walk started in 1994 in Great Britain with a couple of schools and now has expanded to 40 countries and millions of walkers participating. (You can read more about it at www.iwalktoschool.org )
Walking or biking to school keeps kids healthy, and improves the air quality and environment. Of course safety is a great concern and with the help of the National Safe Routes to School
program many safety measures are taken in the US to insure our children a safe walk to school.
Wearing reflective gear is a good idea because visibility can be low on a foggy or cloudy day or it may not be totally light yet. Some good ideas for children walking to school are Reflective stick-ons
for coats and bags, reflective backpacks
and a reflective collar.
Please let us know your safety ideas for kids.
