Safe Routes to School Parent Survey
Whittier Parents and Families: 

Please take a moment to complete a very brief on-line survey about how your Whittier student(s) get to school.  Whittier has received a generous grant from the Minnesota Safe Routes to School program to improve walking and biking here at Whittier.  By completing this survey, you will help us gather baseline data to use in preparing for this grant.
