The Region of Peel and your school would like to reduce school congestion and promote overall school safety by encouraging more of our students to walk and/or roll to and from school.
When our students walk and/or roll to and from school, we can:
* Increase the number of those who are physically active to
improve overall health
* Reduce traffic congestion around the school
* Improve air quality
* Create safer streets for pedestrians and cyclists
* Increase school and community engagement
Between April to June 2016 and mid-September to early-November 2016, school traffic counts will be conducted for two days at your school to gather baseline data on how students travel to and from school. Traffic counters will count the number of students who are driven, walk, cycle, scooter, or skateboard to and from school.
Should you have any further questions, please contact:
