Walk to School Day

International Walk to School Day is a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day. It began in 1997 as a one-day event. Over time, this event has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school and a celebration – with record breaking participation – each October. Today, thousands of schools across America – from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico – participate every October.

Walk to School Day 2017-2018 is scheduled for October 4.

Join Baywood in celebrating Walk or Bike to School Day! Encourage your child to walk or bike on this day. Gather a group of kids from your street or block, make a banner and become a 'walking school bus'. Show your community spirit!

When kids arrive at school, they are greeted by our principal, Mrs. Dinielli, and teachers passing out water and healthy treats to all those who walked or biked to school.

This event is hosted in partnership with SLO Department of Public Health on National Walk to School Day. For more information, contact Mrs. Dinielli
