First Walking School Bus of the Year - Sept. 3rd

Don't miss the first Walking School Bus of the new school year on Wednesday, September 3rd! Join in for a fun walk to school and enter to win a door prize!

Walking School Buses are groups of people walking or biking to school together. The Walking School Buses (WSB) in Grand Marais meet in three locations:

  • West WSB leaves at 7:20 a.m. from 8th Ave. West & 2nd Street (passes Birchwood Apts on the way to school)
  • Central WSB leaves at 7:20 a.m. from the Courthouse Parking Lot.
  • East WSB leaves at 7:30 a.m. from 7th Ave. East & County Rd 7.

Each WSB stops at ISD 166 and GES on time for school to begin. If the student normally gets a ride to school, come in a little early to meet at one of the WSB locations and walk or bike to school with friends! Law enforcement and local community leaders will accompany each WSB. Volunteers are always needed; please contact Maren at maren@sawtoothmountainclinic.org or 387-2330 if you are able to help or have questions.

While every day is a great day to walk or bike to school, every Wednesday this fall will be a Walking/Biking Wednesday! Other Walking School Buses this fall will be on October 8th and November 19th. You may download the updated Safe Routes to School Map for more information about designated walking and biking routes.
