Walk to School Day

Students at elementary schools throughout the City will be participating in Walk to School Day activities later this month. The City of West Sacramento has partnered with WALKSacramento to support programs and events that encourage safe routes to school. As part of this work and in honor of “Walktober,” WALKSacramento is coordinating and leading “walking school buses” to celebrate Walk to School Day.

Volunteer groups, public health and law enforcement agencies are cordially invited to join students and parents at all participating schools:

Walk to School Day events raise awareness of the need to create safer routes for walking and bicycling, increasing physical activity among children, increasing pedestrian safety, and reducing traffic congestion.
