WOODBINE — The borough and Woodbine Elementary School have been honored through Cross County Connection for the New Jersey Safe Routes to School Resource and state Department of Transportation with a First Step certificate of award for their Safe Routes to School efforts, Mayor William Pikolycky said.
The New Jersey Safe Routes to School Resource Center and DoT Recognition Award Program recognizes municipalities and schools (public, private, or charter) for their Safe Routes to School efforts. The Recognition Award Program consists of four levels: first step, bronze, silver and gold, for recognition as a result of involvement and commitment to programs in their community or schools.
Recipients are presented with a certificate or award, depending on which level they achieve, and are recognized on the state Safe Routes to School website.
Recipients implement walk and bike to school events, adopt supportive policies, obtain backing from local constituents and/or use survey tools to evaluate existing conditions for walking and biking to school.
“I want to thank the Woodbine Elementary School Health and Safety Team for their efforts in driving the Walking School Bus and other program components,” Pikolycky said.
