WALK & ROLL TO SCHOOL DAY IS OCTOBER 10, 2018!

Walk to School Day is an international event celebrated every year in early October. Almost all EGUSD elementary schools participate. Schools organize special group walking routes or “walking school buses” on this day. Other activities might include a school-wide safety assembly and greeting walking students with music, incentive rewards, healthy snacks, and art activities. This year, in 2018, we are changing it up to celebrate the day as “Walk & Roll to School Day” to include those who would like to travel to school by bike, scooter, or skateboard. This event is a great time to kickoff year-long active commuting programs!
