SAFETY ALERT: Wednesday is Bike/Walk/Roll To School Day

(WSB file photo from past Bike To School Day)

If you’re on the roads and/or sidewalks tomorrow (Wednesday, May 3rd), expect more multi-modal traffic heading to and from local schools. Genesee Hill Elementary parent Dave points out that it’s Bike/Walk/Roll To School Day and wanted us to share this reminder again: “Drivers, please keep an extra eye out for students biking and walking to school tomorrow, May 3rd. Students will be coming from all directions between 7:30-7:45 AM and arriving in the parking lot on Dakota St.” Any other schools participating? Let us know (or post a comment) – thank you!

    Alki Elementary has a similar event tomorrow, with groups leaving from Anchor Park along Alki Ave & leaving Me-Kwa-Mooks along Beach Drive, 7:00-7:30a.

      Alki’s bike trains are scheduled for  May 17, not tomorrow.  Alki will have an after-school Bike Rodeo tomorrow May 3.

        My apologies. You’re correct. This afternoon is their Bike Rodeo around the Alki Playground, but their Bike to School Day is indeed Wednesday May 17th. Thank you for catching and correcting that!

    The entire month of May is bike/walk/roll for Gatewood elementary, we walk every day and have already seen many more kids and families biking and walking this week!

    Lafayette has an event as well. All the parents and neighbors who continue to ignore the school street signage, please be an adult tomorrow and follow the rules!

    This is a great thing and I want all these kids to be safe.  The other half of the equation is to make sure kids understand sidewalk etiquette, and to be careful of older folks who are walking.

    Every day should be walk bike safety day!

      I walked to school EVERY day from kindergarten to high school. Today, go by any school before or after and see the amazing  # of kids coming/going by car. Why?

        Probably because pedestrian deaths are at an all time high.

    Arbor Heights Elementary is participating!

    When will we restore their stolen independence?

Sorry, comment time is over.
