Hey Thoreau parents, how would you like to only have to get your kid(s) to school 1-2 days/week, and leave the rest up to other families? Check out SchoolPool! Our school is 1 of 3 in the city selected to pilot this innovative program being coordinated by the city and county. You connect with other families to arrange walking school buses, bike trains, and carpools, then take turns during the week getting your group of kids to school. We are doing a soft launch during Bike Month - that's why there were officials from the city and King County Metro and a film crew at Bike to School Day yesterday. Oh, and the school gets money (up to $2,000/school year), and students get prizes, for participating!
