Is Your Student Walking or Biking to School on Friday?

Massachusetts Walk and Bike to school day is Friday.

Friday is Massachusetts Walk and Bike to School Day and students across the Commonwealth are being encouraged to find a safe way to get to school on time.

According to a story published in this morning’s edition of The Salem News, local elementary school students from the Bates, Bentley, Carlton and Saltonstall schools will meet at points around the city to walk to school together.

Members of the Salem Police Department will reportedly be assisting with traffic control Friday morning and organizers told The Salem News that the event is aimed at building school spirit while promoting healthy, green ways to get to school.  

There’s even a Facebook Page featuring maps of the safe walking routes.

So, we have to ask: Will you be encouraging your Salem student to walk or bike to school tomorrow morning? Do they already?
