    Simi Valley Police Department Hosting Walk to School Day Tomorrow

    Simi Valley, Calif.– Simi Valley Police Department will join hundreds of schools across California to celebrate National Walk to School Day tomorrow, Oct. 2nd. Simi Valley Police Department will be hosting a walk with children, parents/guardians and community leaders to various elementary schools in Simi Valley.

    Since 1997, schools nationwide have been participating in National Walk to School Day to highlight the health benefits of walking and the need for safe places for students to walk and bike to school. The event raises awareness about traffic safety around schools and encourages connecting with your community.

    “Walk to School Day is a great way for children to be active and makes walking to class an enjoyable experience,” Simi Valley Police Department, Commander Thomas Meyer said.

    Simi Valley Police Department reminds parents and guardians to teach children the following tips when walking to school:
    • Always look left-right-left before crossing the street. Make sure cars see you. Continue scanning for cars when entering the crosswalk.
    • Encourage children not to wear earbuds and listen to music when walking. Test them on traffic rules like “red light, green light.”
    • See if your child can walk with a group of friends.
    • Emphasize that they should be off the phone while walking.
