LISD Students Participate in National Walk and Bike to School Day
National Walk & Bike to School Day highlights the importance of a safe and active commute to school.
National Walk & Bike to School Day was on October 6 and Elementary Schools throughout LISD participated to support safe, active travel to school.
Some of the LISD schools that had students walk and bike to school were Castle Hills, Mill Street, Peters Colony, Donald and Prairie Trail. TXDOT donated bike helmets to campuses to give away to students throughout the day.
Lewisville and Flower Mound Police Departments also volunteered their time to ride their bikes with students and peddled alongside to escort them across the street to campus.
The National Center for Safe Routes to School, the coordinating agency for Walk and Bike to School Day, is committed to empowering communities to make active commutes to school a safe, appealing, preferred choice for families.
