Swanton to participate in Bike to School Day

Swanton Elementary School and Swanton Middle School will be participating in Bike to School Day on Wednesday. The first National Bike to School Day was held May 9, 2012.

Bike to School Day events raise awareness of the need to create safer routes for walking and bicycling and emphasize the importance of issues such as increasing physical activity, pedestrian safety, traffic congestion and concern for the environment.

The event is being held in coordination with the Safe Routes to School grant awarded to Swanton. A Walk to School Day was held in the fall.
