HOW DO I PARTICIPATE
Students must wear a helmet to participate.
Just show up that morning with your bike and helmet if you wish to participate. There is nothing to fill out prior to the event. All bicycles must be dropped off between 7:15am and 7:45am on Wednesday, September 18, 2019. All bicycles must be picked up by 4:30pm on Wednesday, same day!
Drop off procedures- Allow plenty of time for drop off. Look for Ms. Hayden, who will be directing traffic and the Watchdogs will be unloading bicycles. Please do not pull through the bus lane to drop off your child’s bike and please assist your child in getting the bike to the small fenced in playground area. We strongly recommend you pick up your child’s bike at the conclusion of the bike rodeo. Watchdogs will be guarding the bikes between 11:30am and 4:30pm, so they may also be picked up anytime during the day. KIN students may park their bike in the gym after school and may be taken home when the child is picked up.
Labeling your child’s bicycle-
Please label your child’s bike and helmet as follows:
First and last name 2. Grade level 3. Teacher’s name
