Simsbury Public Schools

Bike safety in PE class.  Simsbury Public Schools’ Department of Physical Education and Health is proud to be administering one of the only Bike Safety Education programs in Connecticut elementary schools.  During P.E. class 4th, 5th, and 6th graders learn bike safety essentials like helmet and bike fit, balancing, braking, signaling, spacing and proper road etiquette.  The curriculum, developed in Simsbury in 2012, is taught by P.E. teachers who have attended train-the-trainer workshops in bike safety education.  Simsbury also hosts workshops to help other school districts develop bike safety programs.
