A shoutout to "Safe Routes to School" for their presentation on bike safety on Wednesday, March 13th. Our K-5th grade students learned valuable tips and tricks for a safe ride to school and around town. The New Jersey Safe Routes to School Program, supported by the New Jersey Department of Transportation, is a statewide initiative with a mission to partner with schools and communities to prioritize and implement opportunities for people to walk, bike, or travel by other wheeled devices. By focusing on improvements to support

active travel by youth, we believe we can create conditions that are safe, healthy, equitable, and appealing for all. "Safe Routes for All" provides safe and equitable access to active transportation for people of all ages and abilities from all backgrounds and neighborhoods in New Jersey. Thank you for empowering our young cyclists with the knowledge and skills they need to navigate the streets safely. Merchantville School is a walking/biking district. Let's keep our school community rolling towards a safer, healthier, and happier future!
