Safe Routes to School: Open House

The Safe Routes to School Task Force is a group of PTO volunteers who are working to support safe and active transportation options in each of our schools. This is a critical time in Newton for our advocacy and at Zervas as we plan for our return to Waban next year.  Many important NPS and city initiatives are underway that will shape our students’ transportation options for years to come including school reconstruction, school assignment, updated health and wellness policies, high school start times, sustainability and complete streets.

Safe Routes is hosting a special Open House on Friday, October 7th at the Waban Library Center from 9:30 am to 10:30 am to you can learn more about SRTS and to ask questions of volunteers and city officials on important elements of the program including fun ways to promote walking and biking, bike & pedestrian safety training, crossing guards, school buses, addressing safety concerns in your school neighborhood.  We will be joined by city staff including the Newton Police Department, DPW and others. Zervas will have a table — look for the Zebra!
