Walking and Biking to School in the Winter

Yes! We encourage sustainable transportation (which is the theme of Newton students Climate Strike event on Friday, 12/06, by the way ).

Newton Safe Routes to School published a page on their website about “All Things Snow“, including:

  • Newton Residential and Business Snow Ordinances – new for 2019!
  • City routes to schools
And a tip on how to ask for sidewalk service:
 
If uncleared sidewalks are keeping you or your children from getting where you need to go, report them on 311. Download the 311 app, snap a pic, note your location, and hit submit. Be specific with your concern and category. You may report anonymously or login.
