Walk to School Fridays return to the Henniker Community School tomorrow and will continue on Oct. 4, 11, 18 and 25 and Nov. 1, rain or shine. There are three sites for students, teachers, staff and community members to meet to walk or bike to school: the police station on Western Avenue, the intersection of Hillside Drive and Rush Road, and the parking lot at Edmund’s department store. Walkers should arrive at their departure site by 7:35 a.m. The departure time for each location will be 7:40 a.m., with the estimated arrival time at school by 8 a.m. Bus students with signed permission slips may be dropped at a meeting site (bus students please note that a pass or “ticket” to get off will be available at school and needs to be signed by a parent or guardian). More volunteer walkers are needed for all the Friday walks; call Peg Keeler at the Henniker Community School at 428-3476 if you’d like to join the fun.
