Bus Stop and Walk to School* (9:30am-12:30pm)

Wednesday, September 13

Come and experience just what a student does when their school participates in a WEEKLY Bus Stop and Walk—which includes a lovely walk in a distinct city neighborhood. Participants will be picked up by a school bus at the conference location. The bus will drive to walk-drop spot where they will unload and be greeted by school/district staff. Participants will walk along the designated route to school, about a half mile, supported by staff, volunteers and school patrol. Along the way participants will see recent infrastructure improvements that are a direct result of the Bus Stop and Walk effort.

Facilitators:

  • Jenny Bordon, Safe Routes to School, Minneapolis Public Schools
  • Carol Rees Grady, Licensed School Nurse, Saint Paul Public Schools.
