Lafayette, Ind (WLFI) - Today is national Walk To School Day. Students took to the streets to discover the benefits of walking and how to stay safe.
Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski visited Glen Acres Elementary. He talked to kids about what to look for when crossing the street and how to conduct themselves along the way. Parent Tiefa Hernandez said the event makes her more comfortable with her daughter walking to school.
"With me walking with her, I get a feel of how she would be walking to school everyday. It's something that I would allow her to do for now on," said Hernandez
Hernanadez said teaching kids the rules of the street is very valuable and is something they will use the rest of their lives.
