Welcome to Western Branch Primary!

Dear Parents and Guardians,


Chesapeake Public Schools is working on a Safe Routes to School Grant to support and enhance bicycle and pedestrian education and promote opportunities and incentives for walking and biking programs in our schools.  The grant is offered by the Virginia Department of Transportation and is called the Safe Routes to School Activities and Programs Plan. As a requirement of the grant, we need to collect parent feedback regarding their thoughts about children walking and biking to school.  The survey that we will be using for this purpose comes from the National Center for Safe Routes to School’s data system.  The surveys will only be available for a 10 day window in March (16th-26th).  Please take a few minutes to complete the survey. Thank you for your support.
