Join the Bike Bus on Earth Day 4/22/2024!

On Monday, April 22nd, we will officially launch the WES Bike Bus–a group ride that gives kids a safer way to bike to school. Please note that for this inaugural Bike Bus, we ask that each child or sibling group be accompanied by an adult. Please wear WES Spiritwear if you have it, or wear blue, green or tie-dye in celebration of Earth Day. For those in fourth grade band, Mr. Greenhalgh has given his blessing for Bike Bus participants to miss practice on the morning of 4/22. Please let him know if this applies to your family.  *If you would like to participate in biking or walking to school without completing the full route, please meet at the Helen Kate Furness Library parking lot between 8 and 8:15am. There, you can join other WES families (plus a special guest) and complete the final leg to WES for a brief celebration before heading into school. 

BIKE BUS GUIDELINES

Please keep the following in mind to help the Bike Bus run as smoothly as possible for kids, parents and WES Staff.

  • Each child (or sibling group) must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver.

  • Please make your own arrangements for biking home or transporting your bikes home.

  • Please bring a bike lock and/or know that WSSD is not responsible for bikes left on the property. You may lock up to the bike rack or nearby fence.

  • You may want to consider testing the route with your family in advance.

  • Please send a yellow note or submit in powerschool if your child's dismissal will change, i.e, they normally take the bus home but will be riding home with you today.
