Walking School Bus Link

This link will allow you to register your child to be a part of the walking school bus during the 2019-20 school year. Elementary school children will walk to school together accompanied by adult volunteers. All adult volunteers have been screened prior to taking this position.

 

Chicopee Hills Trailblazers 

The Trailblazer program teaches older students to be confident and competent walkers and lends visibility to all students on foot. By creating a visible active commute, the program also provides great examples for families who drive and brings peace of mind to parents who want their children to be equipped and supported on the walk to school.

Trained Trailblazers are simply asked to wear a traffic safety vest and to walk a “preferred route” to school. They do not pick up students, they are not responsible for babysitting smaller children, and they are not expected to save lives. They are expected to set a responsible example, to know safe walking procedures, and to be welcoming of all other students who elect to walk with them.
