|North Adams Schools, NBCC to Host Walk to School Day|
|01:04PM / Wednesday, September 13, 2023|
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — North Adams Public Schools will be celebrating "Walk to School Day," with students, parents, teachers, administrators and local "celebrities", on Wednesday, Sept. 20.
"Walk to School" events work to create safer routes for walking and bicycling and emphasize the importance of increasing physical activity among children, pedestrian safety, alleviating traffic congestion, concern for the environment and building connections between families, schools and the broader community.
There will be opportunities to walk with "walking school buses". There will also be "park and walk" sites for families that live outside the routes and/or farther from the schools.
These sites are: Sullivan School Parking Lot on Kemp Ave., Flynn and Dagnoli on West Main St. and the old Price Chopper parking lot, departing these sites between 7:55 am - 8:10 am. The "walking school bus" routes and park and walk sites can be found at www.napsk12.org/WalkToSchool
and on the North Adams Public Schools Facebook page.
The event is being organized by Safe Routes to School and the North Adams Public Schools Safe Routes to School Task Force.
