The survey asks how students travel to and from school. Results of the survey will help improve student transportation and safety. Schools may use the information to apply for future Safe Routes to School funding.

    The survey is voluntary and not being conducted by our district. If you do not want to be called, contact the Department of Health at 1-844-858-7647 prior to May 9, 2016. Please leave the name of your child’s school and phone number so they can remove your phone number from the contact list. Please note that the Department of Health does not have your name so they cannot remove you from the contact list unless you leave your phone number and school.
