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!

May 18th, 2022                                   Happy Walk + Roll Day 2022!

Thousands of BSD students and families participate in May Walk + Roll Day each year. Whether you’re new to Walking + Rolling or you’re already a Walk + Roll Superstar, it’s always good to remember the endless benefits that come from active transportation. Here are just a few:

  • It’s fun – especially when you can get your friends and family involved.
  • It keeps you fit and prepares your brain for learning.
  • It boosts your endorphins and makes us happier.
  • It saves us money, otherwise spent on gas and car maintenance.
  • It often saves us time from sitting in traffic and in crowded parking lots.
  • It’s better for the planet – no air pollution, no fossil fuels burned. Just foot and pedal power!
  • It makes roads safer as more active road users are visible to vehicles.

Gather up your family or find some friends. Plan a route with low-speed and low-volume roads, use your school’s preferred walk/bike map to find your route. https://www.beaverton.k12.or.us/.../safe-routes.../schools

Whichever mode you choose, have fun celebrating May Walk + Roll Day on May 18th!

April 30th, 2022                          Sexton Mountain student led Anti-Idle Campaign!

Two passionate 5th grade students want us to know how idling in school parking lots, not only effects their health, but also the planet. Lucy and Addy are 5th grade students at Sexton Mountain Elementary School and have spent weeks learning, and teaching others, about the effects of idling cars. With the help of the Sexton Mountain Academic Coach, Kristin Hiatt, and the Safe Routes to School Anti-Idle Toolkit, they created their own video to share with parents and families at their school. Today, they took to the sidewalks with fellow students to spread the word and make a difference. Want to create a student-led, anti-idle campaign for your school community? Find step-by-step directions and a toolkit of resources to get you started at www.beaverton.k12.or.us/safe-routes
