Safe Routes to School Spokane

Getting kids to school safely with the power of community

When it comes to the safest ways for kids to walk to school, neighbors and other adults can be great allies in helping protect kids. Safe Routes to School connects schools, parents, volunteers, and community members to ensure walks to school are fun and safe, including volunteers’ help in walking students to school. And walking to school, instead of being driven, can have far-reaching health and emotional benefits. With help from caring adults, more kids can arrive at school energized and ready to learn.
