Safe Routes to School

The Newton Safe Routes to School Task Force is looking for a representative from Bigelow. The task force has monthly meetings (Fridays at 9:30 a.m. at Waban Library, members can also be called into) with representatives from Newton Police, DPW, the Mayor’s Office, and School Committee to address obstacles to students walking/biking/taking the bus to school. One of the initiatives at the middle school this year is starting an anti-idling campaign. The task force is also promoting the student pass Charlie Cards within each school. Other middle schools work with the city on identifying and promoting safe walking and biking routes to school. More at Newton Safe Routes to School Facebook page.

Please contact if you are interested in being the Bigelow representative.
