Walking to school is a fun, easy way to add exercise to the day, but it’s important to stay safe on your way there. Here are some tips from Penn State:
Parents should plan a safe route.
Don’t take shortcuts.
Young children should walk with an adult.
Older students should walk with a friend.
Don’t push, shove, or chase each other when near the street.
Don’t take rides from people if not arranged by a parent.
Wear bright-colored clothes.
Watch for cars at every driveway and intersection.
