In fact, I believe everyday should be walk to school day for kids who can do so feasibly. Mothers could take turns standing guard at given points along a route to insure safety (so sad this is necessary). I walked to school and had good grades and enjoyed the day. I think more kids would if they walked too.

For the children who live too far away, they could be dropped off at a given destination where there was safety patrol and they would still get the benefit of walking to school. The rise of juvenile diabetes and type II in children clearly show that this is a necessary and healthy option.

However, add to your warning items to be alert and aware of those with criminal minds. We need to be severe and swift to punish those who harm our children. Remember the innocent girl recently adbucted and killed walking to school. I would like to see training time given in school teaching children about harmful humans. Maybe each child should tote a whistle and can of pepper spray.
