 All walkers will be walking in groups called “walking school buses” with at least two adult chaperones. Walkers need to wear closed toed shoes.  All bikers will also be riding in groups with at least two adult chaperones. Bikers need to bring their own bikes and helmets.

 Parents and community members are encouraged to walk and bike with us.
