Safe Routes to School

Vicky Nelson, Coeur d'Alene's Safe Route to School Coordinator, will be conducting the next SR2S meeting this Thursday, the 25th, at 4:00pm at the School District 271 Admin building (located next to Sorenson Elementary). All parents, teachers and concerned citizens are encourage to attend.

The goal of SR2S is to identify and provide safe routes for children to walk or bike to school in order to encourage more physical activity.

There is federal money available for all aspects of this program: infrastructure, incentives, encouragement, education...etcetera.

  1. is it safe for a 10 year old to walk, bike, scooter from 4th and Coeur d'Alene and Sorenson school?

  2. is it safe to bike to Sorenson School?

  3. That is a good question. This meeting is actually about determining whether it is safe to bike or walk to Sorenson and if it isn't, to make it safe. They can't do it without the input of the parents.
