Michele Brennick leads students while crossing a street near Emerson Elementary School early Wednesday as part of National Walk to School Day. The program used routes designated by the Safe Routes to School program and included Emerson and Whittier schools. Gina Evans, safe routes coordinator, said 230 Emerson students and 313 kids at Whittier took part in the event and were escorted by Butte-Silver Bow Police officers who helped at crossing points.
