In the spring, the PTO’s Bike Safety Committee and a Service Officer from the Winnetka Police Department will conduct a bicycle inspection for all 2nd grade students.
Children who wish to ride their bikes to school must ride their bike through the bike safety course. If your child demonstrates stable bike riding skills, he/she may begin riding a bike to school. If your child does not ride a bike for the riding portion of Bike Safety Day or does not feel secure enough to ride his/her bike to school, he/she may ride a scooter (but not a bike) for the remainder of the year. The Bike Safety check will include:
- Helmet fit check
- Bike check (reflector, brakes, horn/bell, pedals, handlebar grips)
- Street crossing assessment
- Obstacle assessment
