Explore Our Walking Map: Safe Routes to School
Ensuring the safety of our students on their journey to and from school is a top priority at Maya Angelou Elementary. We have created a dedicated walking map to guide students, parents, and guardians in identifying the safest routes to navigate around the school area. Our aim is to promote a secure and enjoyable commute for all.
Why Use the Walking Map?
Our walking map has been meticulously designed to highlight the most secure paths for students. By using the map, you can:
Identify Safe Pathways: The map showcases the routes with proper sidewalks, crosswalks, and minimal traffic exposure. This helps you choose the best route for your child's daily commute.
Enhance Awareness: Familiarizing yourself with the walking map helps you become more aware of the surroundings and potential hazards. This knowledge empowers both students and adults to make informed decisions.
Promote Independence: As students grow, it's important to encourage their independence. The walking map gives them the confidence to navigate safely on their own or with peers.
Remember: Safety First!
While our walking map offers valuable guidance, it's important to remember a few key safety tips:
- Always use designated crosswalks when crossing the street.
- Encourage children to walk in groups whenever possible.
- Remind children to be aware of their surroundings and avoid distractions.
- If possible, accompany younger children on their way to and from school.
- Follow traffic rules and signals at all times.
By using our walking map and prioritizing safety, we can collectively create a secure environment for our students as they travel to and from Maya Angelou Elementary School. Thank you for your commitment to their well-being and for being an active partner in our school community.
