Staff report

Students and staff from North Tahoe School will particiapte in their 9th annual Bike to School Day this Friday.

TAHOE CITY, Calif. — Students and staff members are teaming up for another fun-filled Bike to School Day on May 27 at North Tahoe School.

Lourdes Shaurette and Marcia Tierney, staff members at North Tahoe School, are leading the charge and are organizing early morning meeting locations in Kings Beach and Tahoe City so more students can participate and ride together safely to school.

Olympic Bike Shop in Tahoe City provides helmets for students who need them, and the Placer County Sheriff's Office provides patrol during Bike to School to ensure the safety of the students.

"It's a great event that we look forward to each year. Kids have fun together, and they get outside and exercise and support healthy air in the North Lake Tahoe region." Shaurette said. "We appreciate the community support to make this day possible."

This is the ninth year that North Tahoe School has hosted a Bike to School event. Kids ride to school from Kings Beach, the greater Tahoe City area and the West Shore of Lake Tahoe.
