Safe Routes to School

To help encourage students to walk and bike safely, we are working with partners from St. Albans City and Vermont Safe Routes to School. One important step in our work is to get input from parents about possible barriers to your child walking or biking to school. Please take a moment to provide your input to help us move forward in creating a safe and healthy community.
