Dear Escondido Families,

Please mark your calendars for October 1st-4th, when we encourage students to walk, bike, scoot, skateboard, carpool, or take the bus to school. If you must drive solo in a car, students can participate by parking a few blocks from school and walking the rest of the way in.

The goal of the week is to reduce the number of students arriving solo by car, thus easing congestion around schools and lessening greenhouse gas emissions. Active commutes, carpooling, taking transit, or riding the school bus can also enhance community and are fun!

We will be starting out the week on Monday, October 1st with a celebratory breakfast in front of the MP room from 7:45-8:10am. Prizes will also be given out, so please stop by! We will also ask students to mark their mode of transportation on our poster.

In addition to walking and rolling to school all week, we would appreciate some volunteers to assist day-of, and/or contribute food items for the breakfast on Monday morning. Please see the below sing-up.

** Finally, if you have a fun bike or other non-motorized mode of transport that you’d like to park in front of the MP room on Monday morning during the breakfast/drop-off time from 7:45-8:10am, we would love you to do so. That could include folding bikes, box bikes, colorful bikes/scooters/skateboards, tandem bikes, etc.

If you have any questions about Walk and Roll to School Week, or would like help finding the best route, please contact Escondido’s Safe Routes to School Representative, Kara Baker (kara.e.baker@gmail.com). You can also consult this MAP which illustrates safe routes to Escondido.
