HULL — Superintendent Judith Kuehn and Police Chief John Dunn are pleased to announce that the Lillian M. Jacobs Elementary School held a successful bike-to-school event recently.
On Friday, May 20, over 150 students participated in the event. The day was coordinated with support from the Hull Police and Hull Public Schools School Resource Officer Leanne Marshallsea.
Students picked one of five locations around town to meet and bike to school on Friday morning. A Hull Police officer and two parent volunteers or staff members rode with each group of students to the school.
Students rode all types of bikes to get to school, and some even used scooters. Students parked their bikes and went into the cafeteria for a quick breakfast before heading to class.
“Our bike-to-school event was an awesome experience for everyone who took part,” Jacobs Principal Christine Cappadona said. “Our location sometimes make it difficult to ride a bike to school, so it was important to provide all students with the chance to ride to school in a safe and supervised way. We thank SRO Marshallsea and the Hull Police for assisting us with this event, and all the parents who volunteered their time.”
