Due to current weather conditions, the city of Santa Clarita is postponing its local Walk and Bike to School Month events to Wednesday, Oct. 21.

Events originally scheduled to occur on Wednesday, Oct. 14 at Rio Vista, North Park and Old Orchard Elementary Schools will now be held on the postponed date.

The date of the Pinetree Elementary School Walk and Bike to School event remains unchanged and will also be held on October 21.

This month, the city of Santa Clarita will join more than 42 countries worldwide in celebrating International Bike and Walk to School Month, which promotes forgoing cars in favor of walking or biking to school.

Each child who arrives at a participating school by bike or foot on Oct. 21 will receive a sticker to wear on their shirt to record their participation.

Each class per grade with the highest participation will be rewarded with an in-class party. All kids who walk or bike to school for the event will be entered into a raffle, with one kid from each school randomly selected to receive a new bike.

"Due to current weather conditions, the city is postponing the three 'Walk and Bike to School' events scheduled for Oct. 14 to Oct. 21 to allow for optimum participation and safety,"  Mayor Frank Ferry said. "The event is a great way to alleviate congestion around schools and reduce automobile emissions."
