BALTIMORE - Not all kids take the bus to school. Quite a few walk. And now a new effort in Baltimore is meant to ensure your kids are safe every day.
The Safe Routes to School program was announced Wednesday. The program promotes walking and biking to school for all school-aged children, from kindergarten through middle school.
It uses giant footprints to show kids the safest way to get to school, and takes them along routes with crossing guards. This year, 45 of the city's elementary and middle schools will be part of the Safe Routes program.
The city hopes to include all the elementary and middle schools in the district by next year.
