Bicycle Safety


Bashaw Elementary’s location does not qualify for a crossing guard; please be aware that walkers and bike riders do so at their own risk.


We ask that Pre-K, Kindergarten and 1st grade students be escorted onto school campus by a parent/guardian for arrival.  School staff will walk all bikers/walkers to the campus exits each afternoon.  We ask that parents/guardians be there for Pre-K, Kindergarten and 1st grade students to ensure safety to and from school.


The following Florida Bicycle Laws must be followed to insure safety to and from school:

  1. Wear a bicycle helmet at all times--it’s required by law.

  2. Ride single file close to the right side of the street.    

       Make no sudden change of course.                  

  3.  Ride alone - only one person on a bike.                       

  4.  Obey all traffic signs and signals.


Because of congestion during arrival and dismissal, students are not allowed to ride bicycles on the school grounds.  Bicycles should be walked to the bicycle rack and locked.  We are not liable for bicycles that are stolen from school property.
