The Safe Routes to School program want to hear from you!

Posted on March 6, 2021 at 5:12 pm by Clay Curtin

The purpose of Menlo Park's Safe Routes to Schools program is to enhance access to all schools that serve Menlo Park residents. The City leads the preparation of a Safe Routes to Schools plan with a particular focus on gathering input and feedback from school students, parents and residents near the school. The plans are also prepared in close coordination with the school district and administration.

We would like to hear your story! Walking and rolling to school or around your community is an opportunity to safely socialize and connect with your loved ones, (re)discover your neighborhood and get some fresh air. All those benefits are especially important during these challenging times. The Safe Routes to School team would like to share with the Menlo Park community moments and anecdotes where walking and biking was a joyful moment. Let us know what you like about walking or rolling to school or anywhere. Please send your story with a photo to Safe Routes to School Coordinator Andre-Anne Cadieux.

Please remember during these times practice safety precautions like staying home if you feel sick, wearing a mask in public and washing your hands often.
