The Piedmont Triad Remote Drop-off Program provides a fun, safe, and active way for children to travel to and from school with adult supervision. Parents and guardians are encouraged to drop their children at a pre-determined nearby location and have them walk in a supervised group to school.
- Improved Air Quality
- Healthier Children
- Traffic Safety Skills
- Reduced Absences
- Positive Social Environment
The Remote drop-off Program aims to reduce the number of idling vehicles in school zones, lower the amount of asthma-related absences, and encourage a safe, active, and healthy route to school.
The Piedmont Triad Regional Council has produced a toolkit to provide local schools and communities with the information they need to launch, grow, and maintain a daily remote drop-off initiative. Please contact Anna Leonard (firstname.lastname@example.org) to see if your Piedmont Triad Community is eligible for assistance in starting a program.
Please feel free to use and modify these materials as you wish, whether or not your school's program is funded through our Remote Drop-off program.
