Safe Routes to School

Cambridge Elementary School in the Lamoille Valley has finalized their Safe-Routes-to-School project. This has been over a yearlong project and now the school has a travel plan that they will propose to the school board and the town Select Board in hopes to make their town a safer community for those who want to walk and bike to school. This process began with a walkability study that included support from various state associations. The school brought awareness to the community by participating in the International Walk to School Day. The school will maintain community awareness by participating in Walk-to School events.
