FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Price Elementary School is one of many schools gearing up for National Bike to School Day next week.

Fort Wayne Community Schools is partnering with the Fort Wayne Police Department and Parkview Trauma Centers to make sure students are ready to ride to school safely.

They received pedestrian and bike safety lessons and helmets.

“We just talked to the kids about how to check your bike to make sure it's ready to ride. You're going to check the ABC's, the air, the breaks and the chain making sure the air in the tires is good, making sure the breaks stop, and that the chain makes the metal move the wheel,” Officer James Arnold said.

Officers want drivers to remember to pay attention for children riding their bikes, and to make sure every child wears their helmet when riding.
