Tri-State schools participating in National Walk to School Day

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Several Tri-State schools are participating in National Walk to School Day on Wednesday.

According to the Indiana Safe Routes to School Partnership and Health by Design, only 13% of children currently walk or bike to school, compared to 50% in 1969. That's one reason the two groups are encouraging schools and parents to help students walk or bike to school.

Below is a list of Indiana schools in the Tri-State participating in National Walk to School Day:

  • Caze Elementary (Evansville)
  • Dexter Elementary (Evansville)
  • St. Ben's (Evansville)
  • Haubstadt Community School (Gibson)
  • Fort Branch Community School (Gibson)
  • Rockport Elementary School (Spencer)
