October 4: International Walk and Roll to School Day

Fremont Unified has at least 28 schools participating in 2023 International Walk and Roll to School Day (IWR2SD), 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.

Most Fremont Unified schools are participating on Wednesday, October 4, though some may celebrate on alternate date.
