Please read study about the academic benefits of biking or walking to school: Kids who walk or 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.
Based on the recommendations of the Plan, a Safe Routes to School Committee has been formed to begin implementing these initiatives.
