Safe Routes to School

Let's take the first step to change community culture and create environments that are more walkable for everyone! Children throughout Marshfield are encouraged to walk or bike to school on Walk to School Day 2020. This international event will be held on Wednesday, October 7.  Marshfield Area School District will plan a special event to encourage kids to walk or bike to school everyday.

A one month walk / bike to school challenge will begin on Thursday, October 1 and continue through Thursday, October 30.   Participating students are eligible to win bike helmets, t-shirts, assortment of prizes, and two grand prize winners from each school will receive a new bike. Prizes are provided by generous donations from the Marshfield Clinic Health System, Nasonville Dairy, and others!

Safe Routes to School 
Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is a federally-funded initiative to encourage and enable more children, K-8th grade, to walk & bike to school. It also encourages a healthy lifestyle and aims to decrease traffic around schools and reduce pollution. For more information, visit the National Center for Safe Routes to School website at www.saferoutesinfo.org.

Wisconsin’s SRTS Program is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. The program provides assistance to local communities to create and administer SRTS Programs and fund SRTS projects. Infrastructure-related projects must be within 2-miles of an elementary or middle-school; eligible projects include such things as sidewalk improvements, crosswalks and signage. Funds are also available for non-infrastructure projects such as SRTS Plans, education materials, encouragement programs and public awareness campaigns. Grants are awarded through a statewide competitive application process. For more information on the state grant program and other helpful resources, visit the Wisconsin Safe Routes to School website .
