Walk to School Day 2021

On Wednesday, October 6, thousands of students, parents, teachers, and school staff across the City of Los Angeles will participate in Walk to School Day 2021, a nationwide safety event highlighting the importance of providing safe routes for students to travel to and from school.

During this year's Walk to School Day, to highlight the importance of traffic safety, Safe Routes to School will temporarily transform Orchard Avenue, New England Street, and 17th Street at Magnolia Avenue Elementary School as part of a pop-up demonstration to enhance the predictability, comfort, and safety of people walking, rolling, and driving to and from the school and surrounding neighborhood. 

LADOT and Safe Routes to School invite all school community members and families to participate in this year’s event.
