Walking is a fun and healthy way to spend time with your child.
In Campbell Union School District, we encourage parents and students to walk or bike to school every Wednesday. For those who live too far, try parking farther away from the school and walking the last block or two.
Since children learn by doing, YOU are your child’s most important role model for learning to walk safely. As you walk, please:
- Obey all traffic signs and signals.
- Look LEFT-RIGHT-LEFT for moving cars, and cross when clear.
- Time yourself. Practice this weekend to find out how much time to allow.
- Check the weather and dress appropriately (boots, rain coat, umbrella, etc.).
As you walk, you can talk with your child about what you’re doing and explain why.
