Safety Program Kicks Off With Milk & Cookies Reception

Sare Routes to School
A new children’s Safety Program will kick off with a “Milk & Cookies Reception” at Samoset Elementary School on March 21. The Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program is a collaborative effort of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), All Children’s Hospital and the Manatee County School Board.

 

The SRTS project is designed to provide parents and students with techniques needed to travel in a safer manner to and from school each day. All Children’s Hospital was awarded SRTS funding by FDOT after submitting a proposal for the safety initiative. Six Manatee area elementary schools were identified to potentially begin the project; they are Samoset, Daughtery, Orange Ridge Bullock, Palma Sola, Palmetto and Prine. Additional schools will be added as requested and as resources allow.

 

The reception is scheduled from 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm at Samoset Elementary located at 1720 33rd Ave. East, Bradenton. Elected officials, stakeholders, school principals, assistant principals and other representatives have been invited.

 

The project began during the 2008-2009 school year when All Children’s Hospital conducted a series of accidental injury prevention programs at the schools that included pedestrian and bicycle safety. In collaboration with the School Board, a proposal was submitted to the Florida Department of Transportation requesting funding for the Safe Routes to School project in Manatee County. The project meets the Florida Sunshine Standards requiring schools to provide pedestrian and bicycle safety.

The Keynote Speaker will be Senior Trial Judge Karl Grube from Pinellas County, who has been instrumental in similar programs in Pinellas County.

For further information please contact Jean Shoemaker at All Children’s Hospital 1-727-767-8581 or Capt. Larry Leinhauser, Manatee County EMS at 1-941-749-3500 x1640.
