Walking and Biking to School
Newton is a city with neighborhood schools, which means that students often live quite close to their school, especially at the elementary level. For many students, walking or biking to school is a safe, efficient, and quick way to go to and from school.
To assist those walking or biking to school, Newton provides crossing guards. Follow this link to find their locations.
Many of our schools have Safe Routes to Schools (SRTS) teams that provide additional information about established walking/biking routes and how families can help their students learn to safely walk or bike to school. More information about Safe Routes to School can be found at:
