Walk Bike Roll to School Day 2021

Wednesday, October 6

On Wednesday, Oct. 6, Arlington Public Schools (APS) is taking part in Walk, Bike and Roll to School Day, an annual international celebration that encourages students to walk, bike or roll to school while teaching the health, environmental and community-building benefits of active transportation and safe routes to school.


All schools are registered for Walk Bike and Roll to School Day 2021, so expect to see more students on sidewalks, crosswalks and trails across Arlington than on a typical Wednesday. Each school will participate in its own way, with morning welcome events and other activities planned.


With the return to in-person instruction, the 2021 event will kick off a year-long focus on multimodal transportation safety, redoubling APS efforts to make safe walking, biking and rolling part of the school commute on Oct. 6 and every day.


More information can be found on the APS website and the Virginia Safe Routes to School website.
