Walking School Bus Update

WalkingSchoolBusThree daily morning walking school bus routes started this week. A Near West route (roughly between Fauntleroy Way SW & California Ave SW), Far West route (west of California) and Near East route (between school and 35thAve SW) operate every morning getting 21 students to school safely and on-time. Thank you to the 17 parent volunteers who share “driving” the student “riders” to school one or two days a week. A fledging Far East route is currently organizing for east of 35th. There has also been interest from households to the south of school, but not quite enough to organize a route. If you are interested in participating in a morning walking school bus, please email Shanti Breznau at walkingschoolbus@fpepta.org, including your address and name and grade of your child(ren).

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 walkingbus@fpepta.org

Thank you for participating in our survey. Go Falcons!
