Local kids take part in National Walk to School Day

Some local kids skipped the bus and walked to school Wednesday morning. It was National Walk to School Day.

The La Crosse School District teamed up with the county’s Safe Routes to School program.

Dozens of students heading to Hamilton Elementary joined in. The principal says it’s a great way for them to be involved in the community. “It’s one of those simple things that we can do to promote healthy living, to promote safe communities, and to kick off the school day well,” said Steve Michaels.

Hamilton actually hosts a walk to school every Wednesday.
