Let's celebrate International Walk to School Week
Posted on September 28, 2020 at 7:27 pm by Clay Curtin
This year, due to COVID-19 and distance learning, the Menlo Park Safe Routes to School program invites you to celebrate the International Walk to School Week (October 5-9, 2020) by taking a walk to anywhere! You can walk with your family around the block to your favorite local store and to the park. Test your route to school and check the
Walk and Roll Map
of your school to see suggested safe routes. Please share with us pictures and selfies of your walk while having fun and staying safe!
Here are some ideas of activities you can do from home, with your family during the week.
Menlo Park Walk and Roll Activity Book
and learn more on walking and biking safety. Parents can check the Readiness checklist at page 18 to see if your child is ready to walk alone.
Watch the Pedestrian Safe Journey Video, available in English and Spanish, and take the quiz!
Ages 5- to 9
Ages 10 to 14
Ages 15 to 18
Take a walk! Share your experience and take a selfie or picture during your walk.
Make a drawing related to walking to school: What do you like the most about walking? With whom do you usually walk? Your favorite places to walk? What are the benefits of walking for your health, the environment?
Don’t forget to share your pictures and drawings by tagging @CityofMenloPark.
Traditionally Bike to Work Day is in May, but this spring it was canceled due to COVID-19. This year, celebrate with us and many communities for Bike to Wherever Days held throughout September.
