On Wednesday, expect to see more cars in driveways. School buses may be emptier and the sidewalks should be crowded with students and school staff.
More than 60 schools throughout the state are participating in Walk and Roll to School Day on Wednesday.
Among those schools will be Aspen Elementary School and Piñon Elementary School.
These two institutions are encouraging students to forgo vehicular transportation and walk, ride a bike, push a scooter or roller skate to school.
Shirley Graziano, Aspen school nurse, said it is the school’s third year participating in the event and Piñon’s first time in the program.
Graziano said participation at Aspen Elementary has grown each year. The first year, 43 percent of the students participated in Walk and Roll to School. Last year, she said, 60 percent of the students were involved.
Graziano added she noticed when the Walk and Roll to School was held there was a drop in the number of students who walked into her office.
During the first year, Graziano saw two children. Last year, she saw none. This is a significant drop to the typical 10-15 students Graziano treats.
“I have to think that there is a correlation between the two,” she said.
