023 Winter Walk+Roll


We invite all students and families to celebrate our first official Winter Walk+Roll to School Day on Wednesday, February 8, 2023! Walk, roll, or bus to school and win cool prizes! To celebrate the day, participating schools will include all students in a raffle with prizes including bright clothing, something that rolls (skateboard or scooter), and a refurbished bike from WashCo Bikes!

Be Bright! Dress in colorful + reflective clothing. Drivers watch out for pedestrians and cyclists / VÍstase con ropa brillante y reflectante. Conductores tener cuidado con los peatones y ciclistas.

Our Safe Routes to School Program is made possible with support from Metro and the Federal Transit Administration.

Safe Pedestrians, Healthy Students, Stronger Communities
The Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Program helps improve, educate and encourage children to safely walk, bike, roll, or bus to school!

Increased active transportation results in healthier children, reduced traffic, and, ultimately, a more robust community. The SRTS Program can benefit all schools and families through the following program goals:

  • Safe Pedestrians
  • Active/Healthier Students
  • Less Traffic/Improved Air Quality
  • Stronger Communities Working Together

Our SRTS Program is a vital part of the city's Strategic Vision: "An equitable community that is walkable, healthy, and accessible for everyone."

Grant Award
The City of Tigard was awarded $2 million to make critical safety improvements at Templeton Elementary and Twality Middle schools for students walking and biking to school.  The funds were awarded through the Oregon Department of Transportation's Safe Routes to School Competitive Construction Grant Program.  Learn more about it!
