Walking School Bus (WSB)

What is a Walking School Bus (WSB)?

Walking School Bus is a group of children walking to school under the supervision of one or more adults, who have cleared a background check and have been approved. It is a planned walk that either picks your child up at home, or starts at a designated meeting spot. It is an enjoyable, healthy, safe way for everyone to walk to school together.

What are the benefits?

  • It's an easy way for participating children (and adults) to receive 20 to 30 minutes of exercise.
  • Children learn that walking is a natural and fun activity that they can enjoy the rest of their lives.
  • Further develops a sense of community and belonging.
  • Physical activity can help improve academic achievement.
  • More children walking to school can mean fewer parents driving which means cleaner air and less traffic congestion around school.

What makes it safe?

  • Each route (see right side for routes) is designed with your child's safety in mind.
  • Walk stops (meeting points) are close to your home.
  • Trained/ background checked volunteer leaders walk children to school.
  • Children are dropped off at the school door.
