Walking School Bus Program Comes to the Monterey Peninsula!
Join the Walking School Bus!
A walking school bus is an adult-supervised walking group to and from school. Walking is one of the best ways to get and stay healthy, which is why we are inviting the residents of Marina, Seaside and Monterey to join a Walking School Bus in their community this April.

Park & Walk
Live too far to walk all the way from home to school? No problem! You can still get some exercise in and help reduce traffic around the school. Just park a block or two away and walk the rest of the way to school.
