Safe Routes to School

Turkey Trot Walking Wednesday on November 14, 2012

On Wednesday, November 14, 2012 from 8:15-8:45 we'll be hosting Turkey Trot Walk to School Day. In case of rain, we will be in the cafeteria.

Volunteers Needed for Safe Routes to School!

Bridge needs YOU for the PTA-Safe Routes To School (SRTS) program!

How: Volunteer time is 1-3 hours /month.
Why: SRTS needs YOU to keep the program effective and dynamic!

Neighborhood by neighborhood, SRTS has been successful in making our community's sidewalks and bikeways a safer, more attractive transportation option for our students. Focusing on safety, exercise, and fostering a sense of community, it has been effective in increasing the number of students who walk, bike, bus, or carpool and in decreasing the number of cars and idling at our schools.

SRTS is modeled after national and international programs. More than one-third of the state's towns participate. SRTS in Massachusetts is parented thru the Massachusetts Dept of Transportation. As are the other local programs, Lexington's SRTS is sponsored by local PTAs, overseen by the Lexington Sidewalk Committee, and works closely with DPW, Engineering, LPS Transportation, Facilities, and the Planning Board. The program is endorsed by the Selectmen, School Committee,
Superintendent, and the Police.

We are looking for help and also for a co-chair.  For more information, please contact Ann Stokes.
