Parents and their students entering kindergarten this fall are encouraged to attend the free annual I Walk & Ride Safely program sponsored by Poudre School District, the Fort Collins Police Department, and the Larimer County Sheriff’s Department. Older students are also welcome to attend.
Children will learn how to walk to school or ride a school bus safely. Instructions are given under actual traffic conditions, including crosswalks, signs, traffic signals, automobile traffic, and crossing guards. PSD school bus operators participate at all schools and the Fort Collins Police Department and/or Larimer County Sheriff’s Department will participate at some schools. For more information, please call the training department at 490-3141 or 490-3578.
