What is Active4me?
Active4.Me is an innovative program that schools can use to increase the number of students biking and walking to and from school. The program uses barcode technology to capture trips to school and computes the impact each trip has on CO2, gas, dollars, and calories. Each student is given a barcode tag and it is entered into the Active4.Me database. Every school day a volunteer scans in each student as they arrive, capturing that trip. Parents are immediately notified by text (SMS), phone, or e-mail that their student has arrived at school.
Scanning will begin August 22, 2023!
How it works?
Parent permission is required for students to sign up for Active4.me! Please register, print, sign and return the registration form to receive a student barcode tag. Registration forms can be dropped off in the front office or to the scanning station near the bike racks. Permission slips are available in English, Spanish, and Simplified Chinese.
A volunteer scans in each student each day as they arrive at school, capturing that trip.
A text or email is sent to notify parents that the child has been “scanned” and is at school.
This is a parent-run volunteer program that is supported by the PTA.
Parents receive a text or email each day when their child checks in with a scanning volunteer – it’s a perk to get a notification that your child has arrived safely at school!
It encourages kids to be active!
Riding or walking to school helps develops maturity and independence!
The data collected helps Davis qualify for grants that are used to pay for improvements to our bike paths and safe routes to school!
Kids earn small incentives throughout the year!
Who can participate?
- Everyone enrolled at North Davis Elementary can participate! Even if you bike or walk to school with a parent or guardian.
- If you live too far away to walk or bike, you can drop off as close as a block from school (which might be easier for parents!) and walk from there.
Please e-mail the PTA. This is a parent-run volunteer program that is supported by the PTA. NDE staff does not run the program or have access to the data.
