2018/2019 Walking Maps & Safety Information
Posted on 07/18/2018
Dear Parents, Guardians and Students:

Provided here is a variety of information to help your kids get to and from elementary school safely. The information discusses safe walking route maps, along with safety tips for walkers, bicyclist, and motorists. These materials are provided in effort help all enjoy a safe and accident-free school year.

The Safe Walking Route Maps are produced by the City of Appleton Department of Public Works and are available on the City’s website.

These maps are intended to help figure out the best route for kids to get to and from school safely. The maps display streets with and without sidewalks, crossing guard locations, intersection control, traffic signals, school crosswalks and school locations. Keep in mind the safest route may not be the most convenient. Key features to look for when identifying routes are adequate sidewalks or paths, favorable intersection control (i.e. yields, stops, and traffic signals) and crossing guard locations. Try to find routes
that stay away from busy main streets if possible.

We encourage parents and guardians to review their school’s map with their kids and talk about acceptable routes to use. If a certain crossing seems too challenging, or conflict with the mapped routes, we ask you physically assist the kids at that crossing or provide education on how to cross that location successfully.
