Thirty years ago, 60% of children living within a 2-mile radius of a school walked or bicycled to school.  Today, that number has dropped to less than 15%.  Children who walk to school are more alert and ready to learn, strengthen their social networks, can develop lifetime fitness habits, help to reduce traffic, and learn how to be good/safe pedestrians.

 

In the search of ways to make walking to school safer, more fun and more convenient, communities are finding that walking school buses can make a real difference.  A walking school bus is a group of children walking to school with two or more adults. Passengers can “get on the bus” at the start of the route or at meeting points along the way.

 

Beryl Heights Elementary School was one of four schools in the Beach Cities to pilot a Walking School Bus (WSB) program.

Be part of an amazing program that is transforming our beach cities community!  Walking School Buses:
 
·       Help kids arrive alert and ready to learn
·       Increase student safety by reducing traffic around campus
·       Teach valuable lessons about pedestrian safety
·       Reduce financial & time strains for parents
