What is a Walking School Bus?WalkingSchoolBusLogo.png

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 fall session begins the second Friday after school starts and runs each Friday school is in session until Thanksgiving break. The spring session begins the first Friday in April and runs each Friday school is in session until the end of the school year.

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.
