Every day, many elementary school students walk to school. San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD) Positive Youth Development Department is working to make sure students have safe routes to school, so that they are as safe walking to and from school as they are when they arrive at school or home.

Join the Positive Youth Development team, as well as students, parents, and staff from Roosevelt and Henry Elementary Schools for the January 28 Operation Safe Routes 2 School Walk.

The event begins at 7:30 a.m. at Roosevelt Elementary School, 1554 North Garner Avenue in San Bernardino. The group will depart promptly at 7:45 a.m. to designated stops on common routes students use to walk to Roosevelt and Henry Elementary Schools. Participants will walk with students and parents back to Roosevelt Elementary School.

“Our goal is to empower parents and students by promoting health, wellness and safe paths to school,” said Marlene Bicondova, director of Positive Youth Development. “By walking the routes our students take, we can catalogue the obstacles they face, such as broken sidewalks or unsafe intersections. Once we know, we can work to do something about it.”
