Walk & Roll to School Day is Wednesday, October 4th!

Wednesday, October 4th is Walnut Acres first Walk & Roll to School Day of the new school year!  We will be celebrating National Walk to School Day that day, along with Foothill Middle School.  

WHY walk & roll? It's fun, healthy, reduces traffic, it's pollution-free, and it gives students responsibility and builds independence! Click here for event details and to find out where you can meet up with a Walk & Roll group  near you. And, don't forget to check in when you arrive at school to be counted and get a prize!  
Students are reminded to use Street Smarts to stay safe while biking, skateboarding, riding scooters and walking:
Always...

  • Wear helmets,
  • Ride on the right side of the road (go in the same direction as traffic),
  • Stop at red lights and stop signs,
  • Make eye contact with drivers,
  • When walking: Use crosswalks and Stop, Look, & Listen before crossing streets!

Parents are also reminded to use Street Smarts while driving in the 20 MPH school zone. Your children - and their classmates - are worth the extra time it takes to drive safely.
