School reopening is the big topic right now: how to do it safely, effectively, and efficiently. New requirements for health checks, physical distancing, and reduced bus capacity are likely to create bottlenecks, congestion, and lost instructional time at pick-up and drop-off. At the same time, students and their families may be seeking physical activity and stress relief—available through walking and biking. Below, find several resources that may be useful to school communities!
Check out this webinar from our friends at Local Motion to help school communities lessen transportation challenges this fall by encouraging walking and biking. (The PDF of the webinar presentation can be found here.)
Local Motion also offers this resource list, which has guides and information to help school communities through this work. Though geared toward Vermont schools, both resources from Local Motion can be useful to New Hampshire schools as well.
Finally, here is a Safe Routes to School toolkit specifically for fall 2020 from a program in Oregon.
