Old school

Students across the state biked to school on Wednesday as part of the second annual Bike to School Day.

For Peach Plains Elementary School students, Wednesday also kicked off the “Hike it, Bike it, Like it” event, in which they are encouraged to walk or bike to school each Wednesday in May.

Participating students have their names placed in a drawing for lunchboxes, water bottles and wheel spoke reflectors.

Bus-riding students had the option of being dropped off a few blocks away from the school so they could also participate in the event.

old school is right, i lived 10 blocks from school, had to ride my bike in good weather and walk in the snow, no rides, but thats the way it was, now they get bussed even if they live two blocks from school and the system is tight on money, lol

yep, and parents drive their kids to the bus stops and in the winter sit there with the car running while waiting for the bus to come.

Good thing these students don't go to Kenowa Hills... The administration would have suspended them and threatened that they would not be allowed to graduate.

Ha ha, I was thinking the same thing when I read this!

???? This is good news people! About kids! How can you live with yourselves, always searching for something negative in EVERYTHING! Geez! By the way, kids don`t get bussed to school if they live within a mile from the school, and that since budget cuts.
