International Walk and Roll to School Day (IWR2SD) is an annual event held by schools across the world to encourage students, caregivers, and the school community to walk, roll, or use other active modes of transportation to get to school. 

Participating schools tally the mode of transportation by which students arrive to school on IWR2SD by placing a sticker on a mode chart. Schools may also hand out prizes and host special guests from the community to cheer on students arriving at school. 

Many schools in FUSD are participating in IWR2SD, most on Wednesday, October 12, though some may celebrate on an alternate date. Look out for messages from the following participating schools for more information:
