The Archuleta School District’s Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Program, called Retro Metro Kids, is celebrating its one-year anniversary with its observance of National Walk To School Day, and there is a lot to celebrate.

Over the summer, the Town of Pagosa Springs repaved Piedra Street and built a new sidewalk on the north side that connects 8th Street to 10th Street, bringing children safely to a crosswalk that leads to the elementary school fields. This is a significant step toward making Pagosa Springs a great place for children to walk and ride their bikes safely to school.
