Safe Routes to School
International Walk & Roll to School – Wednesday, October 10, 2018
Bacich: After walking and rolling to school, stop by the quad for muffins and coffee (coffee for the adults).

The Kentfield School District encourages all families to actively participate in our nationally-recognized KSD Safe Routes to School Program, a neighborhood-focused initiative to advocate green travel alternatives, and address traffic safety at our schools.
A team of Neighborhood Parent Captains provide suggested safe route maps and carpooling options all customized by neighborhood. We also advocate for traffic safety concerns on behalf of the families in our district's neighborhoods.
