Jan or Feb – NO Walk & Roll!  We'll be back in March! BUT in Feb we’ll show appreciation to our Bus Drivers with:

February "Love My Bus" Month- celebrate the school bus by trying it out if you don’t already ride! We’ll also celebrate the school bus and the role it can play as the solution to our air quality issue. We’ll also show gratitude to our bus drivers. 

 3/3   1st WnR Day of 2023! We'll celebrate early "Georgia National Walk N Roll Day" (technically Wed, March 8) because we do our Walk N Roll's on Fridays!

5/3 - National Bike to School Day – Celebrating National Bike Month by biking to school with family and friends! This is not an official Walk N Roll Day, but we encourage you to bike this day!

Talley's Safe Routes to School Updates:

 -TALLEY PARENTS, WE NEED YOUR HELP!

If bus riding, carpooling or walking from home is not an option, please consider parking in a less pedestrian congested area nearby like Fellini’s, the old Ace Hardware on E. College or off Sams St., or wherever you can find to reduce cars near the bustling S. Columbia/ Shadowmoor/Talley St. intersection during drop-off/ pick-up times. This will get you in & out faster and with less car idling!
