Walking to school is great for studentshttp://cci.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/155Walking to school is great for students<p>​Walking to school is a great way for your child to get the 60 minutes of daily physical activity that's needed for good mental and physical health. It also builds responsibility and independence, and helps them feel more connected to the community. More walkers means less traffic around our school, which helps keep students safe and improve outdoor air quality. Even one day a week of walking to school can make a big difference! To find out more about how to support active and safe routes to school through School Travel Planning, visit <a href="http://www.saferoutestoschool.ca/school-travel-planning">www.saferoutestoschool.ca/school-travel-planning</a>. </p><p><em>Information provided by the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit</em></p>
