Edward School Travel Survey
Dear Parents and Guardians,
King Edward is taking part in an active
transportation project to make our students' trips to school safer and
healthier. Our students, staff, and parents will work closely with the Greater Essex
County District School Board, municipal staff, community groups, and public
health. We are all working to achieve the goals of having fewer vehicles around
the school at drop-off and pick-up times, and to have more students walk, bike,
or take the bus to and from school.
Active transportation is a way to travel from one
point to another using physical activity and not motors. Examples include,
walking, biking, skateboarding, or rollerblading. Active transportation is good
for our health, and it’s good for the environment with less vehicles on the
road. This can also help make it safer for students by cutting down traffic
back-ups and conflicts around the school.
Please complete this 5-minute survey to tell
us more about your child’s trip to school. Your input is important in making
our school as healthy and happy as possible. Knowing what travel choices you
are making, and why you are making them, will help our school be as active and
safe as possible.

Transportation survey: https://chkmkt.com/kingedward_ATsurvey
As a thank you for helping us, you have the
option to be entered into a draw for a prize. At the end of the survey, you
will be asked if you want to be entered. If you do, your name and contact
information will be collected in a new form, so your information stays
anonymous. There are three (3) gift cards valued at $50 for Canadian Tire.
Your answers will be confidential and
anonymous. If you do not feel comfortable answering a question, feel free to
leave it blank.
Thank you for your help,
