William Tell Elementary encourages students to walk to school

-A A +A

TELL CITY – Staff and teachers of William Tell Elementary are making efforts to get students to utilize new sidewalks along Tell Street leading to the school.
A supervisor will be at the Tell City-Perry County Public Library at 7 a.m. each school day starting Aug. 17 to supervise students as they are dropped off between 7 and 7:20 a.m. The group of students will then depart from the library at 7:20 a.m. for the school. Walking will occur rain or shine, so parents are asked to make sure children are dressed appropriately.
Parents are asked not to drop off students if a supervisor is not present. Cancellations due to severe weather will appear on the school’s Web site.
According to information from the school, the program is “to build partnerships with the school, Parent-Teacher Organization, local police department, City of Tell City, civic associations, local politicians and businesses to create an environment that is supportive of walking to school safely. By creating active and safe routes to school, walking to school can once again be a safe, fun and pleasant part of children’s daily routine.”
