Hudson Schools to celebrate Bike/Walk to School Week  Tuesday Oct. 5, 2016

Hudson Schools will be joining schools from around the U.S. to celebrate Bike/Walk to School On Tuesday, Oct. 5, 2016.  

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. 

There will be parent volunteers and an increased police presence in neighborhoods surrounding Hudson Schools. 

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.
