The rain held off just long enough for schools to participate in Bike to School Day today, May 6.
At McLean, students in morning latchkey rode their bikes around the park next to the school. Other students rode their bikes to school with their parents. Students who didn’t have a bike helmet received a free one. Volunteers fitted each of the students to make sure their helmet fitted properly. Representatives from the Wichita Police Department, the Wichita Fire Department, Sedgwick County Sheriff, Sedgwick County EMS and FedEx let students sit inside their vehicles and talked to students about their jobs and about safety. An obstacle course was set up so students could learn about the rules of the road. For more information read the full article on USD259’s website
