​Walk & Roll

​Walking map for Flatirons.

The Walk & Roll committee encourages students to take alternative transportation to and from school for their own health and the health of the environment.  It's also plain fun - we've even had students arrive on pogo sticks and stilts.  Our motto is "Everything Counts!"  If you live too far away to walk or bike, consider bus riding, carpooling and even parking your car one or two blocks away from school.  We have ongoing programs, and special events throughout the year.  To volunteer, please contact Amy Love at (303) 527-0451 or amyelove@gmail.com.

"WINTER BIKE TO WORK AND SCHOOL DAY - WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 22, 2014"

All BVSD students, staff, and parents are invited to participate in Winter Bike to Work and School Day on January 22nd.  Hope you'll be one of them.

Note that the Breakfast Stations are clustered in the City of Boulder but this does not mean one must live there in order to participate.  Anyone can register and ride and perhaps win a drawing prize.  More information may be found at this BVSD BIKE TO School web page.

Remember to sign up for trip tracker and earn dollars to spend locally.  Registration is always open at bvsd.org/tracker.

Thanks for your support!

YEAR ROUND

Trip Tracker Program
Trip Tracker encourages and rewards students for walking, biking, skating, scooting, busing or carpooling to school. Families record their alternative transportation trips and send them in via a monthly e-mailed survey (or on paper calendars when no e-mail is available). Totals are generated for 'Student-Powered', 'Other-Powered' and 'School Bus'

Trip Tracker Dollar Rewards are given based on number of trips and number of miles each month. These 'dollars' can be spent like cash at participating local businesses (see list on BVSD webpage). The program is currently running at twelve Boulder schools (see list on BVSD webpage). For program details, please read the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ). If you are interested in having Trip Tracker at your school, please contact peter.hurst@bvsd.org.

 

 

 



Park & Walk:  Park your car at least one or two blocks away and walk students to and from school.  This relieves traffic congestion in front of  the school, making it safer for everyone.  Make it fun with a scooter or skateboard, or designate meeting points to Walk & Roll with a group!

Carbon Challenge:  Each morning use alternative transporation (Everything Counts!).  Keep track and and the end of the year calculate how many miles and gallons of gas saved - and all the resulting pollution.

The Flatirons Walk & Roll committee was started in 2006 as part of the national Safe Routes to School initiative.  In 2008 it became a committee of the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).
