Join Jessie Beck's Walking School Bus
What is a Walking School Bus?
A Walking School Bus is a group of children walking to school with one or more adults. The adults walking with the kids are parent volunteers and act as “Bus Drivers”. They have been checked and approved through the same school standards set forth for any school volunteer. They can be identified by their brightly colored vests.
When and where does the bus go?
We meet at the corner of Manor & Mark Twain Ave every morning at 8:15am, rain or shine. Please review the route below. At each labeled stop, the Bus Driver will stop for a few minutes around the listed time. They will help children to safely cross the street if necessary to join the group. At this time, the Walking School Bus will only operate before school. We may add an after-school Bus as well if there is interest.
All students are welcome.
All Jessie Beck students are invited to join the Walking School Bus. Please don’t think your child cannot participate because you don’t live along one of these routes. You can bike or drive your child to any of the Bus Stops so they can take part in this healthy and environmentally friendly program.
Why have a Walking School Bus?
The Walking School Bus promotes physical activity as well as environmental sustainability. It is essential for the health of our children and the future of our air quality.
