Walk to School Program – The Walking School Bus at Wrightwood Elementary consists of four walking routes, each led by trained parent volunteers. Each route is approximately 1-2 miles long and there are several scheduled “bus stops” along the way. These stops are pre-arranged locations with set times for pickup just like regular school bus stops. Participating children can join the WSB route at any of the bus stops anywhere along the route. Walking school buses provide many benefits. Children receive exercise as they socialize on their way to school. This buffer zone, between the home and the school, enables children to have a fun way to prepare for the day ahead of them and burn calories at the same time. The WSB at Wrightwood Elementary began in the Spring of 2013. Currently, there are over 100 children registered in the WSB, with approximately 50 children walking every day of the school year.
