2015-10-07 08.26.37It’s that time of year again – students across the globe will be hitting the sidewalks for International Walk to School Day. BFF wants to remind kids and parents to stay alert, whether walking or driving, and practice all the rules of the road.

The following Orange County Public Schools are participating in the event this year:

  • Sadler Elementary School
  • Dommerich Elementary School
  • Lake Sybelia Elementary School
  • Catalina Elementary School
  • Citrus Elementary School
  • Spring Lake Elementary School
  • Ocoee Elementary School

Don’t see your kid’s school listed? That’s okay! Just grab your kiddos walk to school – teaching them about safe walking as you go. Here’s a quick video from WalkSafe that talks about crossing the street safely.

You can also check www.walkbiketoschool.org for additional events. The best way to find out if your child’s school is participating is to give them a call.

Make sure you share photos of the kids walking with #iY4Peds and #WalktoSchoolDay. Happy walking!
