|WHAT IS THIS DOCUMENT? Resources and ideas for working on Safe Routes to School during the time of the Covid-19 pandemic |
Members of the Safe Routes to School listserv have organically been crowdsourcing ideas for how to continue engaging youth and families while schools are closed, opportunities for remote learning and working, adjustments to messaging, policy opportunities created by this pandemic, and more. As the suggestions grow, we are aiming to add more structure to the conversations happening on the listserv so that people can have one document to go through rather than sifting through all the emails on the listserv related to covid-19. We hope that you find this a useful resource and you will both share resources you find here as well as add resources you are seeing elsewhere. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please email email@example.com
This collection of resources was initiated by Rosie Mesterhazy, City of Palo Alto Safe Routes to School Coordinator, Jeanne LePage from Ecology Action Santa Cruz, Victoria Custodio, California Active Transportation Resource Center, and Hannah Day-Kapell, Alta Planning + Design. It is modeled after the Public Health Awakened listserv covid-19 spreadsheet. Thank you!
Please note that you should consider the recommendations comtained in this spreadsheet in the context of your state and local guidelines. Response to COVID-19 is different all over the country; please adhere to your local guidance on social distancing, self-isolation, and/or quarantine. Stay safe, take care of yourself, and do what is best for you and your community.
