Parents and neighbors gathered at Congdon Park Elementary School on Monday to discuss safe morning commutes for their children.

The Congdon Park Safe Routes to School Committee held the meeting. Principal Kathi Marshall said the goal of the committee is to get kids active by encouraging them to walk or bike to school. Along with that, she said, they aim to find safe routes for kids to take.

"The Safe Routes to School Committee has spent a lot of time just analyzing the area around Congdon Park to look at sidewalks," she said. "We've looked at parking lots, we've looked at Superior Street, just to see what are the safe routes for our children to be traveling to school."

If any routes are determined to be less safe, she said, they brainstorm ideas to improve them.
