The Healthy RC Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program reflects a national movement to create opportunities for students, including those with disabilities, to safely and conveniently walk, bike, and roll to school. The SRTS program brings together parents, community members, students, teachers, school officials, City staff, and public safety officers to identify and address potential safety issues and strategize ways to encourage students to become more physically active. When routes are safe, walking or biking to and from school is an easy way to get the regular physical activity children need for good health. Safe Routes to School initiatives also help ease traffic jams and air pollution, unite neighborhoods, and contribute to students’ readiness to learn in school.
