For children, walking to school can be an easy way to incorporate more physical activity into their day! Allowing your child to participating in active transportation, including the Walking School Bus, can help your family feel more comfortable with the idea of walking to school.

Walking to school can help your child to better concentrate when they are in class, build their social skills, allow them to become street smart, gain self-confidence and a sense of responsibility, and become more independent.

We want to advise students and families that STWDSTS may encounter higher than normal rates of absence for school vehicle drivers. We know this can be challenging for families. Please remember to support your local school vehicle driver. If the driver is covering a late route and is not your regular driver, they have most likely already completed their regularly assigned route and are helping to make sure that your children can get to and from school safely.
