Idle Free Schools
A idle free refresh presentation and Idle Free Schools Manual (pdf) are available. Idle Free signs are posted around school parking lots, and drop-off and pick-up areas reminding drivers to turn their vehicles off when parked near the school.
Vehicle exhaust contains harmful chemicals that can affect children's health. Children are exposed to a variety of pollutants as they pass idling vehicles. In addition, exhaust can be drawn into the school through cold air intakes or through open windows and doors. Particulate matter emitted as part of vehicle exhaust poses a serious concern as it can be breathed deep into children's lungs.
Join the large number of drivers who are becoming idle free. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 403-342-8750 to receive your free static cling decal to identify yourself as an idle free driver.
To protect our children’s health, let’s turn the key and be idle free.
