    Suggested Walk Routes and Bicycle Policy

    File: EEAB

    The Lake Washington School District works in partnership with the cities of Kirkland, Sammamish, and Redmond as well as King County for the purpose of developing suggested walking routes for elementary students. These routes are developed and reviewed by a district Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Advisory Committee. Members of the committee include members from local jurisdictions, parents, and district staff. All routes will be reviewed annually. The Committee will use the most current version of the Washington State School Walk and Bike Routes: A Guide for Planning and Improving Walk and Bike to School Options for Students as guidance for the annual review.

    The district encourages the use of bicycles as a mode of transportation to school when safe. Bicycle routes designated by the local cities and county are included in the Suggested Walk Route maps. All elementary students above the age of 10 may ride a bicycle to school with a completed permission form signed by the parent/guardian. For students under the age of 10, an adult needs to accompany the student both to school and on the return home.
