Walk and Bike to School Day 2013

When: @ 7:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.
Where:  Schools around Arlington
Who:  Arlington students, families and neighbors 
Fee:  None!

What:  Each October, Arlington Public Schools (APS) and the County's WalkArlington and BikeArlington programs join forces to take part in this international event. Part of a month-long celebration, the event encourages students to walk and bike to school while teaching the health and environmental benefits of walking and biking. Walk and Bike to School Day also raises community awareness about the importance of pedestrian safety education, safe routes to schools, well-maintained walkways, and traffic calming in neighborhoods and around schools.

Arlington will celebrate International Walk and Bike to School Day on Wednesday, October 9 this year. Throughout the entire month of October, many APS staff and PTAs will incorporate activities focusing on biking and walking into the curriculum.  And along with supporting participation of all schools, APS, WalkArlington, and BikeArlington will highlight activities at Swanson Middle School.
