Bike to School Day is coming up on May 10!  

We'd like to encourage all students

and staff who have them to wear their orange Bike/Walk to School t-shirts and each student arriving by bike will be greeted near the bike racks with high fives. Some items to consider:  

1) Wear your helmet

2) For all the younger students, ride with an adult

3) Go over safe cycling practices with your family

4) When you reach school grounds, please walk your bike to the bike rack area located near the main doors

5) Be mindful of pedestrians

6) Plan to bring a bike lock

7) Develop your plan for getting home-- parents, please ensure your younger students are accompanied by an adult if cycling home from school
