In honor of October 4th being National Walk to School Day, the Foster City Parks and Recreation Department is excited to announce its participation in Safe Routes to School, Foster City. On Wednesday, October 4th, Audubon, Brewer Island, and Foster City Elementary School students and families are encouraged to participate by walking and/or riding their bikes to school. Families can stop by the Safe Routes Incentives Table at Audubon, Brewer Island, or Foster City Elementary School to sign a safety pledge to show their commitment to improving the health and safety of our students and our community. Recreation Staff will be on site before school giving out incentives for those who sign a safety pledge. You can also participate in the walking school bus located at a park near your child(ren)'s school in support of having Safe Routes to School. If your child goes to Audubon Elementary meet at Gull Park, Brewer Island meet at Erckenbrack Park, or Foster City Elementary meet at Edgewater Park before 7:50am. Snacks and an exclusive giveaway will be given to those who participate in the walking school bus. Lastly, the school with the largest percentage of people walking or biking to school will receive the Golden Sneaker Award for the school with the highest participation, and will be able to hold on to it for the entire school year.
