Here at JRB
Walk To School Day Is Coming October 4th (Please read)
JRB students (K-5) and staff members are participating in International Walk to School Day with students and staff from Oakmont Regional High School. Our walk will start around 8:40 AM at Oakmont Regional High School and end at the John R. Briggs School. All regular bus routes will run, but they will drop-off the students at Oakmont where teachers and other JRB staff members will greet them and direct them to the correct area of the football field.
Students who get dropped off by parents should also be dropped off at Oakmont, not JRB, on Walk to School Day. Parents can drop off their children from 8:20 AM-8:30 AM at the front entrance of Oakmont where some JRB staff and Oakmont Peer Leaders will greet them and escort them to the football field. Use the map below to picture the process.
For students who participate in morning Extended Day and arrive before 8:20 (as well as some of our staff), there will be a bus (or two) to bring them to the high school where they will join their teachers and classmates for the walk to school.
Oakmont teachers and students will escort each JRB class as they walk to school. The Ashburnham and Westminster Police Departments will help with traffic flow to ensure the safety of all students. This activity is designed to teach students how to walk safely and respect the rules of the road. If we think the walk will be postponed due to inclement weather, raining or temperatures below 30 degrees, the walk will be canceled and notification will go out by 7:30 AM.
There is only Breakfast for extended day folks on this day since we are not back to the school until after 9:00 AM.
