Join us for “Walking Wednesdays” beginning Wednesday, October 29th and continuing through the remainder of the school year (weather permitting).
If you live 1 – 2 miles from your school and you have a safe route, why not consider walking to school every Wednesday?

If walking to school or around town, remember to use caution at crosswalks. Look both ways and make sure you have a safe path, clear of cars, before you even step off the curb into the crosswalk.  Remember, we "Fall Back" to Standard time on Nov. 2, so it will be light again (for awhile) in the morning.

Mark your Calendars - Weds. May 14 - Walk and Bike to School Day 2014

Hudson Schools Celebrates

National Bike/Walk to School Day
Weds. May 14th 2014

Hudson Schools will be joining schools from around the U.S. to celebrate our  annual National Bike/Walk to School Day on May 14th.   

Students from Evamere, East Woods, McDowell and Hudson Middle School will be walking and bicycling to school that Wednesday along with parents, teachers and community leaders.

Parents and students living in the "Walk Zone" or within two miles can map a route with sidewalks, signals, and crossing guards using our link and Safe Routes map here

Walkers and bikers alike will receive recognition on this day to get out, celebrate Spring and get some morning exercise!   Participating students can enter a raffle to win prizes! There will be parent volunteers and an increased police presence in neighborhoods surrounding Hudson Schools.  Tables will be set up manned by parent volunteers to reward participants, and there will be special recognition on the morning announcements!

If you would like to volunteer for our May or October Walk/Bike to School Days or any Safe Routes Hudson Event contact Brenda Divine, Safe Routes Hudson coordinator at

Bike/Walk to School events work to create safer routes for walking and bicycling and emphasize the importance of issues such as increasing physical activity, promoting independence among children, pedestrian and bicycle safety, traffic congestion, concern for the environment and building connections between families, schools and the broader community.

The event is being organized by Safe Routes Hudson, a community-initiated effort to improve the walking and bicycling conditions in Hudson.  Special emphasis is being placed on a combination of activities that make it safer for our children to walk and bicycle to school.
