School Travel Planning

school-travel-planning

We are excited to announce that we have begun an in-depth School Travel Planning project at Lawrence Grassi Middle School, in partnership with the Town of Canmore, that will help us determine how we can improve the school journey and encourage more children to walk or wheel to school. School Travel Planning has had much success in increasing children’s physical and mental fitness and reducing traffic congestion and emissions at schools across the nation.

 Benefits of More Students Walking & Wheeling to School:

  • Increased safety
  • Improved health
  • Arriving alert and ready to learn
  • Less stress, greater happiness
  • Less pollution
  • Reduced traffic congestion at and around the school

You can find out more about School Travel Planning by reading the Introduction for Parents (PDF) or visiting the Safe Routes to School website.
