Safe Routes Scoop
Safe Routes Scoop News Briefs
  • In West Windsor, the Maurice Hawk Elementary School teamed up with the West Windsor Bicycle and Pedestrian Alliance to organize an iWalk event. This was the third year that the alliance, a nonprofit organization that promotes bicycle and pedestrian safety and access,has organized the event. Once at the school, participants learned about safety and how to form a walking school bus. Students signed a banner and received stickers, while volunteers gave parents surveys to determine if walking is right for their situation.
  • In West Orange, iWalk was used as a kickoff event to launch the Safe Routes to School program throughout the community. “Walking school buses” brought about 60 students to Pleasantdale and Redwood elementary schools. Principal Jack Halak led one Walking School Bus, to the delight of neighborhood students and parents. West Orange is looking to expand participation next year to all seven of its elementary schools and three middle schools.
