Walk to School Wednesdays


Every Wednesday at Hubbard Woods School (and all the District 36 Schools) is a Walk-to-School Wednesday. Walk-to-School Wednesdays are an opportunity for parents, students, faculty, and staff to be mindful and conserve resources.

Everyone is encouraged to walk, bike, or use some other form of "active transportation" to get to and from school.

Our streets are eminently walkable and bikeable.  Sometimes our schedules complicate things.  But when possible, send your child to school on bike or on foot.  And walk or bike with them when you can!  A little rain and/or cold never hurt anyone!

Model and talk to your children about good pedestrian safety.

  • Obey all traffic signs and signals
  • Choose routes that provide space to walk and have the least amount of traffic and slowest speeds
  • Look for traffic at all driveways and intersections
  • Cross at an intersection with a crossing guard, walk signal, or at a crosswalk when possible
  • Stop at the curb and look for traffic in all directions (left, right, left, to the front and behind.) At an intersection, it is important to look in front and in back to check for turning vehicles. Re-check for traffic that is closest to you. Wait until no traffic is coming and start crossing; keep looking for traffic as you cross the road.


Become part of our Walk-to-School Wednesdays.  Parents, children, teachers, and others all will see the promise of healthier, happier students; quieter, cleaner and safer streets; and more connected neighborhoods.
