135 students in Lee celebrate Walk and Roll to School Day

LEE — More than 130 Lee Elementary School students walked to school on Wednesday morning, trekking over a mile through the downtown area in rainy conditions, as part of a local, national and global effort to promote healthier habits and pedestrian safety for kids.

Beginning at 8 a.m. in the town park, students, teachers and members of the state’s Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Program started their walk to school, with assistance from Officer Chad Cummings from the Lee Police Department.

Jen Carlino, a physical education teacher at Lee Elementary, hopes to continue the monthly walks to school after a successful first go-around, with efforts spearheaded by her fellow teachers.

“The kids really weathered the storm today,” said Carlino. “It’s a unifying event that brings together the whole [elementary] school.”
