It was a brisk fall morning during the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District’s Walk to School Day last Tuesday. Soldotna students participated in the event by walking to Redoubt Elementary, Soldotna Elementary and Soldotna Montessori School. International Walk to School Day is Oct. 10, but the district celebrates earlier to beat the cold.

Sharon Hale of Redoubt Elementary is the event coordinator for the Walk to School Day. She says the event has been going on for about 16 years.

Students met in the parking lot of Soldotna’s Catholic Church, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, and were greeted by school staff and district faculty. Once students got to their respective schools, they were met with breakfast snacks.
