Approximately 200 students from Lynnwood Elementary will be walking and rolling to school, along with parents, teachers and staff. The event will begin at 8:50 a.m. with kids, parents and community leaders walking from the neighborhoods around Lynnwood Elementary School.
Walk to School Day events raise awareness of the need to create safer routes for walking and bicycling and emphasize the importance of issues such as increasing physical activity among children, pedestrian safety, traffic congestion and concern for the environment. The events build connections between families, schools and the broader community.
The event is being organized by Lynnwood Elementary PTA, staff and students and the City of Lynnwood.
