Getting To & From School

  • We encourage all our students to take 'green ways' to school whenever possible to decrease traffic and carbon footprints and increase physical activity. Children in our district get to school by walking, biking, rolling and/or taking the bus. The District works closely with Safe Routes to Schools to make walking and biking safe and with Marin Transit to provide students with low-cost bus transportation options.

    Safe Routes to Schools

    SafeRoutes
    Safe Routes to Schools programs are designed to decrease traffic and pollution and increase the health of children and the community, Safe Routes to Schools promotes walking and biking to school, using education and incentives to show how much fun it can be! The program addresses parents’ safety concerns by educating children and the public, partnering with traffic law enforcement, and developing plans to create safer streets. Marin County pioneered the national Safe Routes to Schools program that has spread across the U.S. For more information see saferoutestoschools.org.
