Dear Parents,

Georges Vanier CS is happy to announce the Walking School Bus will be starting in a few weeks.

The route will be determined by the addresses of families who register in the next few days. So Register Early!<http://www.ottawaschoolbus.ca/helpful-resources/hybrid-walking-school-bus-pilot-program/>

The Walking School Bus


o   Is just like a yellow school bus with a route and set times

o   Is led by an adult leader who walks with up to 10 children

o   if more than 10 children register another adult leader will join the bus

o   runs every day in all  types of weather with "back-up" leaders as necessary

o   the route will be within the Walk Zone for Georges Vanier CS<http://www.ottawaschoolbus.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/George-Vanier-GR-4-6-1.6-KM-Walk-Zone-Map.pdf>

o   families register<http://www.ottawaschoolbus.ca/helpful-resources/hybrid-walking-school-bus-pilot-program/> their child through OSTA

The Walking School Bus is FREE and is brought to you by the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority (OSTA) and Ottawa Safety Council.  Georges Vanier is one of 17 schools in Ottawa to have a Walking School Bus.
