Active4.me uses barcode scanning technology to log students’ bicycling and walking to and from school.
Parent permission is required for students to sign up for Active4.me! Please register, print, sign and return the registration form to receive a student barcode tag. Registration forms can be dropped off in the front office or to the scanning station near the bike racks. Please complete the form at https://www.active4.me/Registration/patwin, sign it, and hand it to one of the bike scanners or leave it at the office.
We need volunteers on school mornings to scan students’ bar code tags from 8:10 to 8:30 AM. ALL positions are open! Please help keep our school active by volunteering. Contact Gabrielle Wyatt at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer. (At this time, the Active4.me app only works with iPhone and iPad, cell service recommended.)
Street Smarts - the bicycle, pedestrian, and car safety program for the City of Davis - is collecting information to learn more about how K-12 students travel to and from school. Please help the City of Davis by taking a brief electronic survey: https://www.cityofdavis.org/city-hall/public-works-engineering-and-transportation/bike-pedestrian-program/street-smarts/online-parent-survey-walk-bike-to-school-2021
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.
Clean air. Exercise. Independence. Free stuff. Those are some of the rewards for Davis students who bike, walk or use alternatives to curbside drop-offs to get to elementary school.
Lorretta Moore, Safe Routes to School coordinator for the city,
encourages parents to enroll their children in the Active4.me 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.
