Drivers are being asked to pay extra attention on the roads tomorrow (Wednesday) morning as Fairfax County Public Schools participate in the annual International Walk to School Day.
The event is “an effort to promote physical activity and reduce traffic congestion and pollution near schools.”
“Students and employees are encouraged to bike or walk to school and work on October 10,” FCPS said in a press release. “Parents are encouraged to accompany their children to school, and to work with their school and PTA or PTO to assemble bike trains or walking groups for the event.”
“FCPS has compiled information on walking and biking to school, including information on applying for grants and safety tips, on its Safe Routes to School web page,” the press release adds.
The elementary schools participating in International Walk to School Day in the Tysons, McLean, Vienna and Falls Church areas include:
