Bike Scan

About the Program uses bar code scanning technology to log students’ bicycling and walking to and from school. The program can send parents a text or email notifying them that their child arrived at school. Students can track their miles, calories spent, money saved and carbon reduction. Everyone can use this page to follow their schools’ efforts to promote student health and reduce our carbon footprint through active transportation.
**Please note: do NOT contact the front office with any scanning, text/email notification, or questions. Contact Sarah Rabin <>

Bike Rodeo

This annual event will be held right after school on Wednesday in September . Patwin Hawks will learn signaling and traffic safety, maneuver an obstacle course, master a figure eight, and test themselves in the "Slow Race." Volunteers from Davis Bicycles! will be on hand to fit helmets and pump up tires. Each Patwin Hawk will need a signed permission slip to participate, available in the Office a a few weeks before the event. We always need volunteers-- and a sign-up will be circulated beforehand.

Lorretta Moore, Safe Routes to School coordinator for the city, encourages parents to enroll their children in the program, which tracks students’ arrivals at each school. Davis resident Tim Starback created and donated the software in 2007, and offers it free to his hometown. Parent volunteers check students in each morning.
