Safe Routes to School
La Honda-Pescadero Unified School District’s Safe Routes to School Program is part of San Mateo County's initiative to provide education and programs that will enable our schools children and families to walk, bicycle and carpool more often to school. LHPUSD began participating in this program during the 2012/2013 school year and continues to support Safe Routes to School.
The overall goal of the program is “to make San Mateo County a healthier, safer, more sustainable and environmentally sound community with improved air quality and less traffic congestion by reducing the number of school related automobile trips.”

Safe Routes to School (SRTS) grant aims to promote walking and biking to school and improve traffic safety through the 5 E's: Education, Encouragement, Engineering, Enforcement, and Evaluation. The grant is in cooperation with the San Mateo County Office of Education, with funding provided the City/County Association of Governments.
The La Honda - Pescadero Unified School District recognizes that walking, bicycling, and other forms of active transport to school promote students’ physical activity and reduces vehicle traffic and air pollution in the vicinity of schools.
