Due to the continuing bus driver shortage, we have expanded our walk zones (or “family responsibility zones”). The City of Charlottesville’s Safe Routes to School program works to support safe walking and bike-riding. Learn more and see walk/bike maps on the City of Charlottesville’s Safe Routes to School web page or our Transportation page.
We encourage students to bike or walk to school. Students are responsible for their own safety. Elementary students in grade 1 and younger should be escorted to school; older elementary students should have a family letter on file giving permission for the child to walk/bike unattended. For specific questions about students walking or riding a bike to their local school, “Walking Wednesdays” or other school-wide programs, please call your school.
We have created maps with commonly used walking routes to our elementary schools and middle school (based on distance, sidewalks, and crossing guards), but there may be other routes that your family prefers.
