Walking School Bus to Bordewich

Bordewich Bray Elementary School celebrated Nevada Moves Day by organizing a walk from the old Boys & Girls Club location on Stewart St to the school with is at King St and Thompson St. About 50 students walked with Principal Valerie Dockery, other school staff, and a number of community volunteers. We’d like to see these walking school buses (students walking with one or more adults) happening every day, not just on special occasions. If you have work flexibility to walk with students to or from school, please get in touch with your school and ask how you can help.

Bill Story, NDOT Bicycle and Pedestrian Program Coordinator, provided the photo showing the students walking, and showing the new sidewalk they are walking on along Curry St. Sidewalks along Curry, Fourth St, and Fifth St were recently repaired and replaced by Carson City Public Works, and provide a nicer and safer walking environment for everyone.

Thank you to everyone who participated.

  1. It’s so great to see all the new pedestrian and bicycle facilities being built around town. All these little projects are really adding up!
