Students will be joined by Mayor London Breed, SFUSD Superintendent Dr. Vincent Matthews, District 1 Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer, and other City leaders as they walk to school. The event is organized by Walk San Francisco as part of the San Francisco Safe Routes to School partnership, which aims to make streets safer for walking, encourage daily physical activity, reduce traffic, and help the environment.
