Students Learn Safe Pedestrian Practices (PHOTOS)

The youngest students learn how to safely navigate their way to and from school.

Wednesday, kindergarten students at North Drive Elementary School in Goldsboro received a presentation on safe walking habits during International Walk to School Day.

Shelly Willis is the Coordinator of Safe Kids Wayne County, the organizer of Wednesday’s first-ever Walk to School Day event at North Drive.

Willis says they were specifically warning about distracted walking, and kids were encouraged to put down the cellphone anytime they’re walking near traffic.

Unfortunately, the North Drive Elementary students were not able to take part in the planned walk following the assembly due to slick roads caused by a morning rain shower.

International Walk to School Day events were also scheduled at Dillard Academy and Fremont Stars Elementary School on Wednesday.
