School & Community Involvement

History of SRTS in La Crosse County Started in 2007 with just three schools, the La Crosse County Safe Routes to School program has expanded to include twelve local elementary schools. Coordinated by the La Crosse County Health Department, our program focuses on offering schools resources and program assistance to make walking and biking to school safe and enjoyable for Coulee Region children and youth. Contact us if you are interested in organizing any of these activities at your school!
