In Red Wing, lots of students walk and bike to and from school, and every principal encourages it. Our MAPS, below, show how long it takes to walk and bike from key locations, timed for each age group and school. To parent drivers: Consider dropping your child off early at one of the nearby neighborhoods. It decreases traffic around schools, saves you time, and gets students active so they focus better in the classroom.
Most Fridays in fall and spring, Sunnyside, Burnside, and Twin Bluff school buses drop students off at a safe, designated location so they can walk (or roll) the last 10 minutes to school together with friends and teachers. The 2016-17 school year is the second full year of this program, and teachers and students agree it's a fun, positive start to their Fridays. In 2015-16, all K-7th grade bus riders walked 6,388 miles! Special Education students are included in this program. Questions? Call Michelle at 651-301-0996 or Jessica at 651-385-6174.
