South Washington County Schools

Bike to School Day

Hundreds of students at South Washington County Schools are expected to participate in this year’s Bike to School Day on Wednesday, May 9. Grey Cloud, Red Rock, Royal Oaks, Middleton and Pullman elementary schools, along with Cottage Grove Middle School, will join thousands across America on Bike to School Day, so be on the lookout for bikers and walkers before and after school.  

This annual event, along with Walk to School Day in the fall, is part of a long-term strategic initiative, Safe Routes to School (SRTS). The mission of this partnership-based endeavor is to create safer walking and biking opportunities around our school communities through infrastructure improvements and programs promoting education, encouragement, enforcement and equity. To learn more about SRTS efforts, visit walkbiketoschool.org.

If you are interested in volunteering for Bike to School Day, contact a participating school directly or email Jodi Witte at jwitte@sowashco.org.
