My name is Jared Morford and I’m the new Iowa Safe Routes to Schools (SRTS), Program Manager. I’ve been on the job for the last month now and I thought I would check-in.
So what have I been doing? I’ve been meeting with stakeholders, attending the Iowa Trails Summit, planning the Iowa Safe Routes to Schools 2020 conference, reading the current curriculum, and a bunch more.
I hope everybody had a great Walk to School Day on October 2, 2019. Next year you can expect to see more timely content and ways to make your Walk & Bike to School Day even better!
Mark your calendars:
National Safe Routes to School Conference – November 12-14, 2020 Tampa, FL
Iowa Safe Routes to Schools Conference – January 23, 2020 (Speaker TBD) Des Moines, IA
Bike to School Day – May 6, 2020
Walk to School Day – October 7, 2020

One last thought, the sun is rising later and setting earlier. Make sure you are visible and safe. Bundle up and keep walking and biking.
