VENTURA COUNTY ROUNDUP / Countywide

Walk to School Day Planned Wednesday

September 29, 2000|ANNA GORMAN

With a goal of increasing pedestrian safety on city streets, several Ventura County schools will be participating in Walk to School Day on Wednesday.

Students and adults will be encouraged to walk to school together in hopes of raising awareness of safety when crossing the street and walking to school. It is also meant to highlight the importance of crosswalks, sidewalks and crossing guards.

Organizers say they hope the event will encourage students and their parents to walk together.

Thousands of students, teachers and parents walked to school last year during the first statewide Walk to School Day. For more information on Walk to School Day, or to learn which schools will participate, call 1-877-472-3378.
