Back-to-School Safety Tips

Safe Routes to School

Welcome back to school! The City of San Ramon’s Safe Routes to School Program was launched in 1989 in a collaborative effort with the San Ramon Valley Unified School District. The program educates school site administrators, parents and children about bicycle safety, pedestrian awareness and traffic concerns.

Here are some reminders for drivers/parents and children about pedestrian and traffic safety:

Drop-off and pick-up children from appropriate locations
✅ Obey 25 mph speed limit in school zones and around school sites
✅ Park legally near school sites and walk children to/from school sites
✅ Children should always cross at designated crosswalks
✅ Do not use cell phones when driving to/from school sites
✅ Parents should always hold the hand of children, especially those under 8 years of age, when crossing the street
✅ Slow down in areas where children are walking to school
