Walking program now open at BKW Elementary

Come walk with us! BKW elementary school is now available to the local community to walk in the comfort of our halls.

During the winter, options to walk safely become limited. Therefore, we are opening the school for community members each morning before the school day begins. Read more about the program in our brochure [PDF]. Walking hours are 6:30 to 7:30 a.m.

For the safety of our students, everyone is required to complete an application. A walking pass will then be issued and mailed to the address provided.

You can download the application here [PDF] and mail it to the district office (1738 Helderberg Trail, Berne, NY 12023) or fill it out in the district office.

Until your walking pass arrives, you may sign in and use a visitor's pass (available in the main office of the Elementary School). Additionally, walkers with permanent passes will be required to sign in and out at the main door each time they walk. We are confident this will be a healthy benefit for all.
