Winter Walking Day

Winter Walking Day is Friday, February 26. Will you and your child join us?

Walking is a healthy way to get to exercise, helps kids stay focused and engaged in their learning, and keeps the air around our neighborhoods and schools fresh and clean. 

Tips for a safe and comfortable winter walk:

  • Check the forecast and avoid days that are too cold, windy, or snowy.
  • Dress in layers to help regulate your body’s temperature.
  • Keep your toes warm by wearing winter boots and warm socks.
  • Take your time and enjoy a leisurely pace.
  • Use sidewalks and trails when you can.
  • Wear hats and mittens to keep your head and hands warm.
  • Stay hydrated by drinking water before and after your walk to school.
  • Use sidewalks and trails when you can.

We encourage you to try taking a stroll at home or on the way to school—we think it will be fun and refreshing. Let’s all bundle up and walk together on February 26!
