Santa Monica, CA - Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District (SMMUSD) students and staff are getting out their bikes, scooters, skateboards and walking shoes in preparation for Bike It! Walk It! Week on October 7-10.  Approximately 30 percent of District students at 14 different schools participate in the event, avoiding approximately 12,000 car trips.

Walk it! Day on Wednesday, October 8 include Lincoln Middle School, Olympic High School, Franklin Elementary and Santa Monica High School.  The remaining SMMUSD schools will participate on Friday, October 10, including Will Rogers Learning Community, Edison Language Academy, Grant Elementary, John Muir Elementary/Santa Monica Alternative School House (SMASH), Franklin Elementary, Juan Cabrillo Elementary, Point Dume Marine Science School, John Adams Middle School, and Malibu High School.

Bike It! Walk It! and Safe Routes to School programs involve a partnership between the City of Santa Monica, the District, and the Parent Teacher Association to reduce traffic congestion near schools and promote health, safety, environmental, and community benefits.  Lincoln Middle School, John Adams Middle School, Roosevelt Elementary and Will Rogers Learning Community, participated in a Safe Routes pilot program to develop pedestrian and bicycle safety curricula and resources in 2012-13 which a new grant will make available to other schools.  The Bike It! Walk It! effort supports community engagement through this environmentally friendly program.  Please join SMMUSD as we bike, bus, scoot, skate, and walk to school!
