Wednesday, October 3 is International Walk to School Day and Crossing Guard Appreciation Day. Schools all over are getting involved and participating by organizing group walks or rides.
Last year, Bike to School Day was made into a separate event held in May. However, you can do either on International Walk to School Day. And for those of us in Montclair, who may not be able to walk or bike to school because of the Magnet System, many schools are organizing meet up areas a few blocks away so you can walk together in solidarity. The idea is to get fewer cars driving up to the schools.
Here are the local towns participating. Check online to see if your school has registered:
If your school hasn’t registered, you still have time. Just click here and join in.
