CLEARWATER, Fla. (WFLA) – Clearwater Police officers – on foot, bicycle, in cars and on motorcycles – will help students get safely to school Wednesday morning for the annual International Walk to School Day.

Officers will meet up with parents, teachers and students at locations near four elementary schools about an hour before school begins, then safely escort the children to school.

It’s part of an effort to educate students and motorists about pedestrian safety laws and to encourage one group to always look out for the other.

Participating schools are Belleair, Eisenhower, Leila Davis and Plumb. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
