Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety Supports National Walk and Roll to School Day

Rohnert Park, Calif.– The Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety encourages parents and students to join their classmates and walk, bike, or roll to class Oct. 5th and October 19th
The following Rohnert Park schools will be participating on October 5, 2022
Hahn Elementary, John Reed Elementary, Lawrence Jones Middle School, and University Elementary.
Richard Crane Elementary will participate on October 19, 2022.
“Walk and Roll to School Day” is celebrated annually to highlight the benefits of exercise and practice pedestrian and road safety with other students, families, and caregivers.
“Walking to school is a great way to exercise on a daily basis and feel comfortable getting to and from school safely,” Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety, Deputy Chief Aaron Johnson said. “We hope this is a fun, rewarding experience for students and members of the community that shows how important it is for everyone to be safe walking, biking or rolling.”
The Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety offers tips for students who walk, bike, or roll to school:
  • Plan your route on roads with sidewalks or paths away from traffic. If there are no sidewalks, walk or ride as far from cars as possible, facing traffic.
  • Use crosswalks, preferably at stop signs or signals. If there are unmarked crosswalks, cross at corners on streets with fewer lanes and lower speed limits.
  • Wear something bright or reflective.
  • Always look left-right-left before crossing the street. Continue to scan for traffic as you cross the street.
  • Watch for cars entering/leaving driveways or parking spaces.
  • Always wear a helmet when riding or rolling.
  • Be aware of your surroundings. Keep earbud or headphone volume low enough so you can still hear around you.
Drivers should be extra careful and anticipate more foot and bike traffic, as well as be prepared to stop for school buses and children crossing the street. Drivers should always watch their speed and slow down in school zones.
Schools are encouraged to register at as a way of tracking participation and showing support for active, healthy, and safe transportation. 

Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
