Get your school on board
Does your child’s school know about Safe Routes Nebraska? Schools are in a prime position to apply for funds from Safe Routes Nebraska to implement comprehensive Safe Routes to School programs . . . including infrastructure improvements.
Inform you child’s principal, PTA, or school board about the opportunities that Safe Routes Nebraska presents.
- Suggest your child’s teacher add age-appropriate biking/walking safety lessons to the curriculum.
- Discuss a walking/biking incentive program with teachers, where children are rewarded for being active on a daily basis.
- Ask teachers to send letters home to other parents, informing them about the importance of walking and biking for their children.
- Send teachers to this Web site! Our Educators section has plenty of information that will help them implement Safe Routes changes in their schools.
