Local Students Learn Pedestrian Safety as part of Hunterdon County Safe Routes to School Program
Students at Hunterdon elementary and intermediate schools continue to receive education and encouragement as part of their daily walk to school. The 2018-2019 school year marks 10 years that goHunterdon has facilitated the Safe Routes to School program in Hunterdon County. The goals of the program are simple ~ “Where it is safe, get kids walking or bicycling; Where it is not safe, make it safe.”
