Schools + Parents
Walking Wednesdays

On Hold for 2020-21

 

Walking Wednesdays encourages families to walk with their children to school, thereby helping to reduce car traffic and increasing social connections. The program occurs on a weekly or monthly basis, depending on the elementary school. While walking is the focus of Walking Wednesdays, other forms of active transportation like biking, scootering or skateboarding are also encouraged.

 

We welcome all Beach Cities students and families to participate in this program. Walking Wednesdays does not require registration, volunteers or an assigned “bus route.”

New! Virtual International Walk to School Day

The 23rd annual International Walk to School Day is on Wednesday, October 7, 2020! Join Beach Cities Health District with a virtual event to mark the occasion! Even though we’re virtual, it’s still a great way for students and families to be active. We encourage you to walk together as a family at any time that works for you. Remember to wear your face covering and stay at least 6 feet apart from others who are not part of your household.

Share photos of your walk on social media! Use #WalktoSchoolDay.
