Safe Routes to School effort continues – Daily Republic

Six-year-old Leah Patel told her mother Neha Patel that she wanted to give the new “walking school bus” to Rolling Hills Elementary School a try Wednesday morning.

“Because I thought it would be healthier to,” Leah said at 7:35 a.m., as she waited for the short journey to start.

A walking school bus consists of parent volunteers who meet children at a certain place for a walk to and from school. The volunteers keep order and make certain the children are acting in a safe manner. The goal is to get parents more willing to let their children make the journey by foot or bike.
