- Walk & Roll Wednesday Welcome Table Volunteers Needed - Please sign up to host the table and hand out “trinkets” to the kids who walk or carpool to school. The kids really love getting these. This is a great way to encourage foot and bike travel to and from school. It’s an easy volunteer job and does wonders for awareness of the importance of carpooling, walking and rolling to school.
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.
