JOIN THE WALKING SCHOOL BUS
What is a Walking School Bus? A group of children who walk together under the supervision of a trained adult leader to school; the program promotes good health, a cleaner environment, and reduced traffic around school. Walking School Bus routes will be one mile in distance, but not necessarily direct routes to school. Routes are determined based upon sidewalk/safe street access and location of participants’ homes.
