Students Take Part In Walk To School Day

Schools across the western communities participated in Walk, Bike & Roll to School Day 2023 on Wednesday, Oct. 4. Local schools were among the 2,500 schools across the nation to host events. The day focused on the benefits of walking or riding a bike to school, such as avoiding the traffic, staying healthy and being more planet-friendly. The National Center for Safe Routes to School, the coordinating agency for the program, is committed to empowering communities to make active commutes to school a safe, appealing, preferred choice for families.
