Welcome to the latest edition of a twice-monthly newsletter about transportation in the Menlo Park City School District.
Still need a reflective vest?
Laurel still has some free safety vests for students who ride or walk to school. Stop by the main office.
“Kids are Traffic, Too!”
A helpful reader pointed me to this website about Kidical Mass, a fun, safety-oriented bike ride organized by parents across the country. Wouldn’t this be a great event for Menlo Park and Atherton? Contact email@example.com if you would like help getting one started.
Bike Safety Tips: A collection
People have been sharing web sites with transit tips and ideas; keep them coming! Here is a small collection of pages we’ve come across recently:
- General safe biking tips
- Teaching bicycle safety to kids in different age groups
- Motivational ideas to get biking more often
- “How to not get hit by cars”
- Bicycle Safety myths and facts
Sign up at carpooltoschool.com, even if you already have a carpool or bikepool established: other families may be able to lighten the driving load or increase the size of a biking group. The more, the merrier, and safer!
The lighter side of carpool
For a laugh, check out this YouTube clip from the classic movie Mr. Mom.
