Daybreak is planned on a 5-minute rule, which places all kinds of good stuff within a 5-minute walk–including schools. In fact, more than 70% of Daybreak students walk to school at least once a week, which cuts down on emissions from idling cars in the drop-off line at school and promotes a healthy lifestyle starting at an early age. Recently the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) released a new app Walking School Bus, that allows parents to coordinate walks to and from school. Similar to carpooling, but without the car.
Simply search by elementary school for existing walking groups or create your own and invite your neighbors. The best part of the app is that you can assign parent leaders to walk to school with the students, send group text and alert all parents when the walking group has arrived safely at school. Parents can also use the app to coordinate biking groups.
UDOT’s Walking School Bus app is free and available for iPhone and Android devices. All three Daybreak community schools (Daybreak Elementary, Eastlake Elementary and Early Light Academy) are included in the app.
The Walking School Bus app is sponsored by UDOT’s Student Neighborhood Access Program (SNAP)™ which is a fun and comprehensive program for walking and biking safely to school that engages and educates students, parents, school administrators, crossing guards and communities.
