Arrive Alive: A Safe Routes to School Forum Set for Oct. 19
The Montgomery County Council of Parent Teacher Associations (MCCPTA) and the Montgomery County Pedestrian, Bicycle, and Traffic Safety Advisory Committee (PBTSAC) are hosting the Arrive Alive: A Safe Routes to School Forum on Oct. 19 from 8:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. at Northwood High School.
This free event will bring together parents, students and members of the community to discuss ways to ensure walking and bus routes for students in the county are safe. Sidewalks, cycling paths, bus stop locations, and parent dropoff loops are all important components of keeping kids safe as they walk and ride to school.
Attendees will have an opportunity to attend workshops on a variety of topics including:
-Building a better bus stop system
-Public transit 101 for students
-Crossing guards: which schools get one?
-How to get (better) sidewalks in your neighborhood
Representatives from MCPS, the Montgomery County Department of Transportation, Montgomery County Police Department, and the Montgomery County Planning Department will be on hand to share information and answer questions.
