Walk to School Week

Walking and biking to before and after-school programs are normal and safe ways for students to get around, and support healthy students. Join Waynesboro in Walk to School Week September 30-October 4, 2019.

Waynesboro Public Schools will be celebrating Walk to School Week as students, parents, teachers and community volunteers walk to school to emphasize the importance of creating safe routes to school, increasing physical activity among children, concern for the environment and building connections between families, schools and their community.

The event has been organized by a broad partnership that includes Waynesboro Public Schools, Augusta Health, the Office on Youth, the Waynesboro YMCA, and the City of Waynesboro and its Planning Department, Police Department, Fire Department, Parks and Recreation Department School Board and City Council.

Students from Berkeley Glenn Elementary School, Wenonah Elementary School, Westwood Hills Elementary School, William Perry Elementary School and Kate Collins Middle School will be taking part.

Each day of the week, students from a specific school will be dropped at specific sites by their busses, then continue the journey to school, walking as a group.
