Walk to School Day • Oct. 4, 2017

The School City of Whiting is participating in Walk to School Day on Wednesday, October 4th, 2017!
All students and parents are encouraged to participate in Walk to School Day. Parents are especially welcome to accompany their younger children on their morning walk to school.
For those who need to drive, a designated parent drop-off point has been created at the Municipal Sports Complex located at 117th & Center Street (better known as the Little League Parking Lot). School buses will be dropping off students at the Football Field Parking Lot so that those who take the bus can also participate in Walk to School Day. Middle & High School Student Chaperones will walk younger children from the drop-off area to school.
If you plan on using the drop-off area, please leave home several minutes earlier than you normally would in order to allow time for walking to school from the drop-off area. The drop-off area will open at 7:15 am. Please pick your child up after school as you normally do, NOT at the drop off area.
Those who walk to School in the morning will receive a LED customized safety clip to put onto their bicycle or backpack. Be safe and have fun walking to school; it’s a great way to start out the day!
