Pinellas County School Crossing Guards and deputies will join students for the International “Walk & Roll to School Day” event on Wednesday, Oct. 3.

Crossing Guards and Community Policing deputies will meet the students at various locations in Pinellas County and accompany them along the route as they walk or ride their bikes to school.

The walk will be held at about 18 schools throughout Pinellas County.

Schools registered to participate are:

Dunedin Elementary
Garrison Jones Elementary
San Jose Elementary
Safety Harbor Elementary
Oldsmar Elementary
Starkey Elementary
Orange Grove Elementary
Oakhurst Elementary
Highland Lakes Elementary
Curlew Creek Elementary
Ozona Elementary
Frontier Elementary
Ridgecrest Elementary
Walsingham Elementary
Lake St. George Elementary
Belcher Elementary
Plumb Elementary
Dunedin Middle School

The purpose of the event is to promote pedestrian safety and teach children best practices for walking to school each day. The program this year has also been extended to include students who ride their bikes to school.

The event will help students become aware of directions, street signs, traffic patterns and good pedestrian/bicycle behavior. The event also promotes good health and fitness by giving students an opportunity to exercise each day. It promotes a clean environment, getting people out of cars, using less fuel and not adding carbon monoxide to the air. It promotes a sense of community, as it allows the opportunity for students to socialize with other kids on the way to school; and for parents to dialogue with their kids.

Deputies will be assigned to the various schools listed above to assist with traffic control and heightened visibility.

School staff, administrators, community representatives, parents are all welcome to participate in the walk/ride with the students.
