Walking to school just got easier for students and families in Deschutes, Crook, Jefferson and northern Klamath counties through a new Walking School Bus program headed up by Commute Options. Visit www.commuteoptions.org to learn more and register your student. Two routes in southwest Bend will service Elk Meadow Elementary School and Pine Ridge Elementary School!
“LETS WALK AND ROLL….
- A Walking School Bus is a group of students walking or rolling to and from school on a planned route with a trained, adult Leader and volunteers!
- The group will meet at a designated location and follow the suggested route
- Meeting location and schedules for before and after school are set and communicated
- Park and Walk. Live too far from school? You can drop off your student at your school’s meeting location.
- Is there a Walking School Bus at your school? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or ask at your school office to find out.”
