Safe Routes to School
Safe Routes to School is an international movement to make it safe, convenient and fun for children and families to choose healthier, active, and sustainable school commutes. The goal of Safe Routes to School is to get more children bicycling and walking to schools every day. This improves personal health, benefits the environment, increases safety, and decreases traffic congestion around schools. The Cupertino Union School District continues to build partnerships with the cities where our students live (Cupertino, Los Altos, Santa Clara, San Jose, Saratoga, and Sunnyvale) so that we can all make sure our students are traveling to and from school in the healthiest way possible.
Even if you have to get to school by car, there are still options for you to help reduce congestion and make your commute less stressful.
This section of the website contains community-based information to help CUSD parents learn how to start their children biking and walking to school safely, to give volunteers the information they need to get involved, and to provide links to important community resources.
