Walking/Biking Challenge 
  

Two-week Walking/Biking Challenge sponsored by Safe Routes to School San Marino!

STARTED MONDAY, OCTOBER 15 and continues through Friday, October 25, 2012

But is not too late join the fun! Click here to register on-line: http://valentine.active4.me today!

Registered children will receive a special "Stop for Pedestrians" keychain with a barcode which should be

attached to the student's backpack. As the student arrives to school a volunteer parent will scan the bar code,

which will immediately send an email to the student's parent to let them know their child has safely arrived at

school.

 

For your child to participate in this challenge, parents must register on-line, print and sign the Valentine Walking/Biking Challenge registration form and return it to their teacher ASAP.  

 

During the two-week challenge, parent volunteers will be manning the scanners, which will be located near the kindergarten gate, the Little Theater and on the playground near the teacher's lounge.   Students who participate all ten days will receive a t-shirt!

 

Please note: All children riding their bikes to Valentine are required by law to wear a helmet. Pedestrians should follow basic safety rules such as walking on sidewalks, crossing at designated crosswalks, and looking both ways before crossing the street. Bicyclists using sidewalks must yield to pedestrians. Students are not allowed to ride their bikes on the school grounds, so if your child is riding, have your child dismount his/her bike and walk it to the bike racks.
