What is the Walk and Roll Club?

On Walk and Roll Fridays, students and parents are encouraged to leave the car at home and take walk or ride a bike to school . . .
  • for health
  • for the environment
  • for safer streets 
  • for arriving awake and ready to learn
    Attention parents and students, our crossing guards are there to help you. All students must cross the street at the crosswalk where there is a crossing guard on duty. 
    Crossing between parked cars is dangerous, don't do it.
