Since the fall weather has changed and days are shorter, more people are using the school hallways to walk. Hours are usually 3:30-6:30 p.m. Be sure to register with this office and if you have your walking pass from last year, you can use the same one. Walking usually ends in March when the outside conditions are again favorable.
