Bike to School Week

posted May 24, 2018, 10:19 AM by Alisha Summers
Dear Central PS Families, 

Spring is here, bringing warmer weather and longer days. It’s a great time of year to walk, bike or roll to school. Using these modes of active transportation helps to reduce congestion, improve air quality and promote health. Students who travel to school actively arrive at school more alert, focused and ready to learn. 

For these reasons, our school is participating in Bike to School Week, and we invite your child to participate. It might be called Bike to School Week, but it is really about promoting all forms of active transportation - walking, biking and rolling (scooters, skateboards, roller blades, wheelchairs and more). Schools that participate have the opportunity to replace or enhance their school’s bike racks by participating!

Date /Time/ Event description: Ride, scooter, skateboard or walk to school each day beginning Monday May 28th through Thursday May 31st. Bikes and scooters can be locked at the bike racks (or fence) located on the back field by the parking lot. 

Bike to School Week is a celebration of cycling and active transportation. Schools, public health offices, municipalities and regions across Ontario are coordinating activities focused on Bike to School Week, to promote and support cycling to school. Visit biketoschoolweek.ca, or contact the school office for more information about our school’s event. 

Sincerely,
The Staff at Central Public School
