October 9th is International Walk to School Day!  Chamberlin School and Orchard School students, staff and families will begin their day by walking to school together.  The school’s participation in the International Walk to school day is one of the ways that it supports the VT Safe Routes to School program. International Walk to School Day gives children, parents, school teachers and community leaders an opportunity to be part of a global event as they celebrate the many benefits of walking. Walkers from around the world walk to school together for various reasons — all hoping to create communities that are safe places to walk.  If you are driving in the vicinity of Shelburne Road, Baldwin Avenue, White Street, or Patchen Road on the morning of October 9th, please be aware that there may be traffic delays as walkers commute to school, supported by the South Burlington Police Department.
