What is a walking school bus?

A walking school bus is a group of children walking to school with one or more adults. It is a flexible concept ranging from two families alternating walking their kids to school to a structured route with meeting “stops,” a timetable and rotated schedule of trained volunteers. It can also include walk-to-school events where families are encouraged to walk to school along particular routes on a given day. Walking school buses are underway in elementary schools around the country, including West Seattle.

Other FPE parents and I are interested in starting walking school bus routes to FPE next year. This linked survey is intended to gauge interest in walking school buses in various neighborhoods around the school. Please complete your response by Monday, June 9th, so that we can begin organizing before everyone disappears for the summer. Please send any questions or comments to [email protected]

Thank you for participating in our survey. Go Falcons!
