DATE CHANGE! Walk/Bike to School Day in Grand Marais

Join one of the 3 Walking School Bus Routes on Sept. 21st!

Date change due to weather! Please join this Thursday (instead of a rainy/thunderstorm filled Wednesday morning). Thursday, September 21st will be the first Walk/Bike to School Day, with three routes of Walking School Buses in Grand Marais. Walking School Buses are groups of students and adult volunteers walking to school together. The first monthly event will be on Wednesday, September 20th, accompanied by community members and officers from the Cook County Sheriff’s Office. Each Walking School Bus stops at ISD 166 and GES on time for school to begin. If your student normally gets a ride to school, come in a little early and walk or bike with the Walking School Bus from one of the starting locations: the Cook County Courthouse (7:30 am departure), Birchwood Apartments (7:40 am departure), or County Road 7 and 7th Ave. East (7:40 am departure). Students are welcome to join along the route or meet at the starting location (see map for routes). For more information about Safe Routes to School or to volunteer, contact SRTS Coordinator, Maren Webb, at 218-387-2330 or
