Walking School Bus


What is a Walking School Bus?   

In the search for ways to make walking to school safer, more fun and more convenient, the Perry Public  Library has partnered with the Perry Elementary School to offer the Walking School Bus program for our community. A walking school bus is simply a group of children walking to school on a selected day with trained adult community volunteers.

What is the Walking School Bus schedule?

There are two sessions of the program each school year. The 2022 fall session begins on Friday September 30th and runs each Friday morning when school is in session through October. The 2023 spring session begins the first Friday morning in April and runs each Friday morning when school is in session until the end of the school year. The Walking School Bus runs on Friday and to school only. 

Who can participate?

The program is open to any Perry Elementary student in Pre-K through 5th grade with parental permission.

Is there a weather policy?

Extremely cold temperatures and rainy weather are grounds for cancellation of the Walking School Bus. Please provide a mobile number for a text message alert for weather cancellations.
