Safe Routes to School

Academic benefits for Kids who walk/bike to school

In February 2009, St. Thomas Aquinas published its first Safe Routes To School Plan. The Plan outlines recommendations for ways in which to increase the number of students who choose to walk and bike to school.

Recommendations are grouped into four categories:
  • Encouragement
  • Enforcement
  • Education
  • Engineering

Based on the recommendations of the Plan, a Safe Routes to School Committee has been formed to implement these initiatives.
