- This event has passed.
Each year OMS 3rd, 4th and 5th graders who would like to ride their bike to school (and have not participated in the past) are required to participate in the Olive-Mary Stitt PTA Bike Rodeo. This rodeo is an introduction to biking rules and an opportunity for the children’s bikes to be checked for safety. Helmets are a major contributor to safety and are required for the rodeo. Each student is required to wear a helmet during the Bike Rodeo.
Students may ride their bikes to school on the day of the Bike Rodeo and any day after their successful completion of the Bike Rodeo. After the Bike Rodeo, students must continue to follow the school policy of walking bikes on school grounds and riding in a safe and responsible manner, or riding privileges will be taken away.
While we are happy to share safety and skill information with students, it is ultimately the parents who need to ensure their student’s biking skills are adequate. Thanks to the efforts of our OMS PTA, we can encourage safe and responsible biking.
The Bike Rodeo will be cancelled due to inclement weather, and you will be notified via email by 1:30 pm on the day of the event. The rodeo rain date is FRI, SEPT 9.
