Through the North Carolina Safe Routes to School program, the N.C. Department of Transportation works to make walking and riding a bicycle to school a safe and more appealing options for all children.
The statewide, national and international program involves facilitating the planning, development and implementation of projects and activities to improve safety and reduce traffic, fuel consumption and air pollution near schools.
Students at TLC are doing their part by starting a Walk Across NC campaign. Last week students heard a special presentation and started walking!
Look for information coming home with your student.
