Massachusetts Safe Routes to School survey

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

Our school is enrolled in the Massachusetts Safe Routes to School program, which promotes safe walking and bicycling to and from school. Safe Routes to School is a federally funded program administered by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation. Safe Routes to School encourages students to increase physical activity by walking and biking safely, reduce traffic congestion during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up, and teach environmentally sustainable behaviors. This is done through activities such as: Walk/Bike to School Days, walking school buses, Walk Across America programs, walking clubs, and pedestrian and bicycle safety education.

As a partner school, we have the opportunity to administer a parent survey to gain information about how your student(s) travel to school. This survey allows us to determine how far students live from school and how they get to and from school. We will use the results of this survey to work collaboratively with you, the school community, and Safe Routes to School, to address any concerns and barriers in an effort to create ways to promote safe walking and bicycling.

We ask you to please complete this anonymous survey. If you have any questions please contact us or contact our Safe Routes to School Outreach Coordinator Melissa Wilson. Thank you for your time and cooperation.
