At six North Natomas schools, over 1150 students are participating in the Walk to School program each week. This is equal to 24% of the student enrollment using their feet to commute to school on program days.
Each school organizes Walking School Bus groups, where students and parents gather and walk to school as a group. We are proud to say there are now active Walking School Buses in all six Walk to School program campuses.
We want to congratulate the families that are making the effort to “Take the Cool Way to School” and encourage those who have not yet joined the movement to step into the new year on the right foot this January.
