Rockets Observe Walk to School Day

Bossier City

Apollo Elementary has participated in the National Walk to School Day for the past few years.

Students will meet behind Airline High School at 7:30 a.m. and walk or bike down Tilman Drive, then cross the bridge where Tilman meets Deas. Law enforcement and crossing guards will be stationed along the route to keep our kids safe on their trek to school.
