Getting To and From Bacich Elementary School

Wolfe Grade Crosswalk Opening April 26

Safe Routes to School

Important Information About New Crosswalk Near Bacich

As you plan for your child’s walking and biking safety to/from school, please be aware that a crosswalk is being installed at the Wolfe Grade and Sir Francis Drake intersection, located in front of Bacich and Sloat Nursery. Even though the new crosswalk crosses Sir Francis Drake heading towards Bacich, for student safety, those who are able, should continue to use the existing pedestrian bridge to get across SFD.

The crosswalk will be ready for use on April 26. So, when considering your child’s route to school, please follow these simple recommendations as you plan ahead for this change:

  • Students should continue to use the current route they’ve been using going to/from school.
  • Kent bicyclists should proceed down to the Laurel Grove crosswalk to cross with the crossing guard as they do now, and then proceed down McAllister to school (instead of using the new crosswalk and riding through Bacich campus).
  • Kent and Bacich walkers should continue to use the overpass or the Laurel Grove crosswalk.
  • Please share this with your child, particularly if they travel independently to school.

Here are the neighborhood route maps from Safe Routes to Schools.

Learn how to get to school safely with these tips for Hybrid Instruction. (English | Spanish)

All visitors to Bacich Elementary School must enter school grounds through the main office. A visitor badge is required for all visitors and volunteers during the school day, and can be obtained in the office.

  • Please consider walking or biking to campus. Visit Safe Routes to School to discover the best and safest route to walk, bike, skate, to Bacich!
