This year marked the 25th annual National Walk to School Day, with nearly 2,400 events registered throughout the country, according to the National Center for Safe Routes to School.

Afterwards, LAUSD interim Superintendent Megan Reilly participated in a book reading at Dr. Sammy Lee Elementary Medical and Health Science Magnet Elementary School. The reading was part of an event celebrating California Clean Air Day, which also took place Wednesday.

In observation of California Clean Air Day, the county’s Metro system also offered free rides on trains and buses, as well as free access to its bike-share program, to promote mass transit and greener modes of transportation that cut down on greenhouse gas emissions.
