We are so excited to announce that families with children attending Excelsior schools can now take weekly “walking school buses” every Tuesday morning from Excelsior Playground (Madrid Street between Russia and Persia). It’s a fun way to kick-start your morning and students arrive to school alert, awake and ready to learn.
Community hosts and SF Safe Routes to School staff welcome students and caregivers between 8:00 and 9:00 AM with warm-ups and snacks. Walking/rolling groups head off to SF Community School, Cleveland Elementary, Monroe Elementary and Denman Middle School. Community members and families celebrated the kickoff of the Excelsior Walk & Roll Hub in December 2015.
The Excelsior Walk & Roll Hub welcomes you every Tuesday morning, rain or shine: families taking part would love for you to join them, meet neighbors and have a cup of coffee, while the kids have a snack and play with their friends. Every family attending any school within biking or walking distance of Excelsior Playground is welcome thanks to the Safe Routes to School partnership and a grant from the Excelsior Collaborative— join us! Don’t miss out!
