The Safe Routes to School Walking School Bus team visited four Hillsborough County Public Schools on November 18th for the Great American Teach In Day. Each team member went to a seperate school to talk to the classes about pedestrian and bike safety. Safe Routes to School team members also mentioned the “walking school bus” program. Many students attending the presentation at Sulpher Springs Elementary were aware of the walking school bus program or they were in their own walking school bus group. Overall it was a great teaching event. Thank you to the Safe Routes to School team members that volunteered their team to spread the word about pedestiran and bicycle safety.
