Safe Routes to Schools



“Safe Routes to School has the potential to improve the living of an entire generation of school children.”
Rep. Oberstar, US Congress

The Safe Routes to School (SR2S) movement is a national effort that supports students and families traveling to and from schools in ways that reduce traffic, increase safety, nurture healthy bodies, and contribute to clean, green living. Our SR2S partnership between schools, neighborhoods and community leaders enjoys the support of the Corvallis Police Department,  the City of Corvallis Transportation Department, the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition, and the Benton County Health Department.

SR2S also aligns with the Corvallis School District Wellness Policy and Sustainability Initiative by increasing opportunities for active transportation and daily physical activity.

One of the key activities that falls under the SR2S umbrella is elementary schools' monthly Walk/Bike to School (WB2S) Days. Also called, Great Start Days, these events usually take place on the first or second Wednesday of the month with some schools reporting more than 80 percent of their students participating. SB2S Days also are aligned with Free Breakfast Days sponsored by the Food Services Department. All students re served a free breakfast on these days.
