Cypress Trails Elementary School students participated in International Walk to School Day on Wednesday, Oct. 2.
The purpose of this event is to encourage students to walk and/or bike to school for improved health, to reduce the amount of school traffic and to protect the environment.
This year, Cypress Trails was joined by Royal Palm Beach Village Council members Richard Valuntas and Jan Rodusky, as well as five deputies from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
Students had an opportunity to practice pedestrian and bicycle safety on the sidewalks and with the crossing guards.
Physical education teacher Linda Zaskey thanks the PBSO, village officials and the more than 200 students and parents who participated.
