Celebrate Walk, Bike, and Roll to School Day on October 12

Bike to School Day

SPPS invites families and schools to celebrate Walk, Bike, and Roll to School Day on October 12. This is a great time for families to try out walking or biking to school. Not only are walking and biking to school fun, they're also healthy, good for the environment, and can help students come to school more ready to learn. Here are some simple rules to share with your children for safe walking and biking in English, Spanish, Somali, Hmong and Karen.  

Schools can celebrate any time in October, so check with your school to see what day they plan to celebrate. If your school doesn’t have an event planned, consider helping to start one. Individuals and schools can register for Walk and Bike to School Day and find event ideas at

For questions or assistance planning events, contact Sarah Stewart, Safe Routes to School Lead, or 651-744-4188.
