Area Students Encouraged to Walk & Roll to School Next Week

12:39 AM · Feb 12, 2023

During the week of Feb. 13-17 kids are encouraged to walk or roll to school. The weeklong opportunity promoted by Douglas ESD’s Safe Routes to School is geared for students in grades K-12 and their families, which includes virtual and homeschool students. Choose the nicest day of the week or bust out rain boots and coats. If students don’t live near a school, they are invited to participate for twenty minutes in a safe alternative location such as a neighborhood or park. All participants should follow bicycle and pedestrian safety guidelines and are encouraged to participate with a friend or family member. Elementary-aged children and younger should have a responsible caregiver accompany them along their safe route to school. Participants who register at will be entered into a drawing to win a new bike, scooter, waterproof boots or umbrella. Winners will be announced Feb. 20 via email and Facebook at For more information about Safe Routes to School, visit school Via Douglas ESD
