Walk to School event considered
Wednesday, Aug. 26, 2015 — Students at Janesville School will have the potential to participate in Lassen County Public Health’s annual Walk to School event.
Emily Griffin, Lassen Public Health’s SNAP education coordinator, addressed the Janesville School Board of Trustees with rough plans for the event, slated to take place Sept. 19. The event is designed to encourage students to walk to school, if able, and to promote a healthy, active lifestyle. However, some board members found issues with some of the pitched ideas for the second annual event, which included completely closing down Main Street in front of the school and forcing parents to drop off students out of the school zone so children could walk to school.
