  1. I think walking to school is a great idea. I walk my children everyday to Christ the King School in Broadview. However, because of the lack of PROPER sidewalks in North Seattle, walking to school is downright dangerous. If we can truly support this event as North Seattlelites, the city can give us the proper tools to do so.

  2. It would be great to hear from more parents and from schoolchildren about walking to school. If you do walk or send students by foot to school; what kind of experiences do you have?
    If you do not walk or encourage walking; why is that?
    Please send comments.
    Regards, RichardT
