Oct. 6 is Walk or Bike to School Day in Lewisburg

Sep 13, 2016 11:14AM ● By Erica Shames
International Walk and Bike to School Day is celebrated the first week of October, and this year will be celebrated Oct. 6 in Lewisburg, thanks to Walk It! Bike It! Lewisburg. 

This year, the 20th year of the event, the Linntown/Eichhorn campuses will participate. Families with students who live close enough to walk (or bike) are encouraged to do so.

Those who do not live nearby are invited to join the event in one of two ways: either meet up with a friend who does live within walking distance; or come to the Walk to School Day Neighborhood Rendezvous at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church that morning.

Middle School students can start arriving at the church at 7 a.m. That contingent will head out for the Middle School at 7:25.

Linntown students can arrive at the church at 7:45 a.m.. That group will start their walk at 8:10. (If arriving at St. Andrew's by car, please approach from Stein Lane, head east on Adams, and then turn south on Hood Alley. This will permit an orderly drop off scenario and prevent back ups from impinging on Route 15.)
