Walk and Roll To School

Gather your family, put on your walking shoes or biking gear, and celebrate National Walk & Roll to School Day with us on Wednesday, October 12, 2022!

D140 families are encouraged to walk or bike to school together using our Safe Routes to School guides. Millennium's safe route can be found here

Millennium Elementary School

The school with the most student participation will earn special recognition and school-wide popcorn day!

Our hope is that more students will choose to walk or bike to school on a regular basis.

For information regarding pedestrian and bike safety, please check out these tips from the Tinley Park Police Department’s Traffic Safety Unit.
