The Safe Routes to School Program is coming to an end. 2013 will be the last year. If you have any questions about the School SR2S Program, please contact the Lewiston School District at 208-748-3000 or your elementary school principal.
Safe Routes to School (SR2S) is a worldwide movement–and now a federal program–to make it safe, convenient and fun for children to bicycle and walk to school. It began as a 100% federally funded program and changed to a program requiring a local match in October 2012.
When routes are safe, walking and biking to school are fun, easy and inexpensive ways for students to get some of the daily physical activity they need for good health. Safe Routes to School initiatives also help ease traffic jams and air pollution, unite neighborhoods and contribute to students’ readiness to learn in school.
At its core, SR2S is a planning process: it's a process where local stakeholders work together to 1) identify barriers to safe walking and bicycling to school and 2) develop a plan to address those barriers using a combination of infrastructure and non-infrastructure treatments.
