Back To School Safety

Drive, walk & cycle safely

With school back in session starting September 8, 2020, it’s important for drivers, cyclists, parents and children to slow down, walk or cycle safely, be alert and follow the rules of the road – especially before and after school.

We know that it has been difficult to make decisions about whether to send your child to school in person or to participate in online learning. Everyone's situation is different, and the decision to send your children to school in person or online needs to be one that works for you and your family.

If your child is attending school in person, we encourage walking or cycling to and from school, if possible.

Active school travel makes a difference in our community:

  • Healthier children
  • Less traffic and pollution
  • Safer school zones
  • Better academic performance
