    Safe Routes to School

    This Safe Routes to Schools map was made by the City of Lawrence, the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department, and Lawrence Public Schools as part of a community-wide effort to show students and parents the safest route to their neighborhood school. We encourage you and your student to use this map for International Walk to School Day on October 7th, 2015—and every day!—and then provide feedback on street conditions, traffic conditions, and the usability of your Safe Route on the link attached.  Additional questions can be sent to ,, or
