Safe Routes to School

The City of Palo Alto has published a Walk & Roll to School Map to help Escondido families identify walk- and roll-friendly routes for all of our families: http://www.cityofpaloalto.org/civicax/filebank/documents/32306

Parents can use this map to determine how best to walk or bike to school. Features of the map include the suggested routes for walking or biking, the location of crossing guards, travel time estimates, and tips on how to walk and bike safely. For drivers, there are also key safe driving tips for when pedestrian and bicyclists are present.

Last year, Escondido parents, neighbors, and staff worked with a team of City of Palo Alto staff and consultants to develop this map. Questions about the map or school commute routes may be directed to: saferoutes@cityofpaloalto.org or 650-329-2156.
