Safe Routes to School
Walk & Roll Wednesdays
Thanks to everyone who participated in International Walk and Roll To School Day on Wednesday, October 10th. Keep up the people-powered transportation throughout the year on Walk and Roll Wednesdays.
The Kentfield School District encourages all families to actively participate in our nationally-recognized KSD Safe Routes to School Program, a neighborhood-focused initiative to advocate green travel alternatives, and address traffic safety at our schools.
A team of Neighborhood Parent Captains provide suggested safe route maps and carpooling options all customized by neighborhood. We also advocate for traffic safety concerns on behalf of the families in our district's neighborhoods.
