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 or questions.                                 View our 2019-2020 Annual Report

Be Safe!  Maintain 6 feet of distance from others while walking and biking outside.  Try a bandana for a quick and easy face cover!



Be Healthy!  Keep moving to get your recommended 60 minutes of physical activity daily. You can invite friends on a virtual walk!


 


Be Alert!  Keep your eyes and ears open and look all ways before, and while, crossing the street.  Always cross at street corners!

Active Kids = Healthy Kids!
Congratulations to Findley Elementary for having the most entries in the SRTS May Walk + Roll Challenge! Thank you to the 21 schools that participated and to our district families for encouraging students to stay active and safe while traveling around their neighborhoods. We recorded a total of 2,307 trips for the month of May! We enjoyed reading about the reasons why you love walking and rolling, like these:

“My favorite part (of the May Walk + Roll Challenge) was biking and scootering because they were new and I could go fast!” – 3rd grade student at McKay

“My favorite part was that I got to spend time with my family when we were scooting.” - 4th grade student at Findley

SRTS would like to invite all students to join us for our first summer challenge: “Turf to Surf”. Students will take a virtual bike ride from Hillsboro to Astoria by logging their walk + roll mileage in their neighborhoods, along an actual bike route map. Details will be available on our website soon: www.beaverton.k12.or.us/safe-routes

We hope you enjoy a safe, active summer full of walking and rolling!
