Today is Massachusetts Walk and Bicycle to School Day!
The program is part of the Safe Routes to School program by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) in which students, parents, school staff and local police departments across the Commonwealth join forces to promote walking and bicycling to school.
According to the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, 86 schools across the state are participating today, which equals about 25,000 students.
Did you walk to school with your child today? Did your child walk or bike to school? How did it go? Some schools encouraged students to make signs such as "It's cool to walk to school!" and handed out stickers to kids for participating. What did your school do?
