Walking School Bus

Welcome back to the WSB for the 2023 - 2024 school year!! 

Do you need a way to get to school that isn’t the bus or a car? Then the Walking School Bus might be the thing for you! It’s a great way to start the day in the fresh air and maybe even meet new friends!

We have two different routes to accommodate as much of Northampton as we can; one route starting at Sheldon Field that leaves at 7:40am and another route that starts at the Lumberyard Apartments and leaves at 7:30am. Can’t make it to a starting point on time but still want to walk with one of the groups? That’s just fine; meet up with the group where you can!

Do you have questions, comments, or concerns, about the WSB? 

Please email Olivia Marshall, the WSB coordinator at wsb@bsspto.org
