Walking School Bus

What is a Walking School Bus? It is a national movement where groups of children meet at a neighborhood gathering place each morning and walk to school under the supervision of school approved adult “bus drivers.”
In addition to having fun while getting daily exercise and learning about street safety, children arrive to school ready to learn. These “buses” cut down on the traffic congestion and poor air quality associated with car lines dropping students off at school.
If you are interested in starting a Walking School Bus program at your elementary school, please let ACF Executive Director Mark Berte know: mberte@joinACF.org or (251) 990-6002.
