Safe Routes 2 School is an international movement to encourage walking and biking as a healthy, safe, and community-minded alternative to going to school by privately owned vehicles (POVs).  POV's are great, especially for longer trips or in very bad weather.  However, the health benefits from walking or biking to and from school are substantial.  There are many other benefits as well. 

In Rogers City, all three schools, city government, and several dynamic citizens are work steadily to encourage our your people to walk or bike to school.  We want to envourage parents, teacher, and students to join us!

We are planning a "walk-to-school" day for September 15, 2010.  Starting at designated points, responsible adults will lead a "walking school bus" to get everyone to school--and make it fun too! 

If you care about our kids and about our community, let one of our champions (Jim Hopp, Art Ross, Melissa Stieger), your school officials (Jamie Huber, Linda Schalk, or Amy Rabeau), or city staff (myself, Matt Quaine, or Toby Kuznicki) know that you are interested and want to join us to create a more walkable and bikeable community for our children anf for everyone!

You will be glad you became part of Safe Routes 2 School (SR2S).  Thank you.
