The Banneker walking school bus operates every Tuesday and Thursday before and after school.  

Here’s how the walking school bus works:

  • There are 2 different routes: east and west. The routes are shown below and can be changed slightly to accommodate new student participants. 

  • First pick up in the morning is at 8:15am and students arrive to school by 8:45am. Students who live along the route will be picked up during the walk to school, one at a time out front of their house.

  • The afterschool walks will start at 4:10pm when the walkers are dismissed from school, and the last student will be dropped off at home by 4:40pm. Students who live along the route will be dropped off during the walk home, one at a time out front of their house.

  • The walking school bus coordinator will communicate with you to determine a morning pick-up time so you and your child can be ready when we come by.

  • Parents are encouraged to join the walks.
