Safe Routes to School

Beaverton Safe Routes to School Logo

Walk, Bike, Bus... It's the Way to Go! 

The Beaverton Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Program is all about creating safe, convenient, and fun opportunities for youth to walk and roll (skateboard, bike, scooter and bus) to and from schools. This is important for the health and safety of our kids and to foster the creation of livable, vibrant communities. SRTS programs increase physical activity and improve unsafe walking and bicycling conditions on routes to and from school and throughout the community. 

Please Contact SRTS for any support, questions or to sign up for our Monthly Newsletter!

Kids walking/rolling with text School's in, watch out for kids!

February 22nd, 2021                               School's in, Watch out for Kids!

A few of our schools will return for Limited In Person Instruction on Monday, February, 22nd... and that means school zones are back in effect at various locations.

When you see flashing school zone lights, please slow down and take extra care, especially on dark, rainy days.
Even when school zone lights are not activated, we should all take extra precautions. With kids learning in a variety of ways, they are encouraged to take active breaks throughout the day. This means that kids are everywhere at all times of the day. #BSDtogether #BSDsaferoutes

Whether you walk or roll a few blocks or over a mile, physical activity is good for your heart, your whole body and it's fun! With cold, winter weather, children spend less time playing outside, but a nice brisk walk or bike ride can help achieve their recommended 60 minutes daily exercise and help prevent childhood obesity and support healthy bones.
