5. The Town of Los Gatos is holding a townwide, K-12 Safe Routes to School week Oct. 3-9 during school drop-off and pick-up times. All schools and students in town are encouraged to participate and contribute to improving the health of students and the environment by reducing traffic congestion around the schools. The easiest way to participate is to not use a vehicle for the school commute—walk, bike, or skateboard instead. For those who don't live close enough to walk or bike, or who drive for other reasons, there are ways you, too, can be a part of the program: carpool or use safe and legal drop-off and pick-up spots away from congested areas around the school. If your school has issued a Parent Driver Contract, sign it—you are simply committing your family to always use safe driving practices around schools and when students are present. Details: 408-354-6851 or swalpole@LosGatosCa.Gov.
