Monday, November 22, 2021

MUSKOGEE, Okla.  — Oklahoma School for the Blind has rescheduled the Walk to School Day on Tuesday, November 9.

OSB’s high school students will partner with several organizations dedicated to healthy living, including OSU Extension Office’s High Obesity Prevention program, the TSET Healthy Living Program and the Action in Muskogee (AIM) / Connect Muskogee initiative.

“Walk to School Day will bring attention to the importance of having accessible walking paths and sidewalks that promote healthy lifestyles,” OSB Superintendent Rita Echelle said. 

The public is invited to meet the students at Civitan Park at 7 a.m. and join them for a short walk to school.

“After students benefit from physical activity that will get their brains ready to learn, they will head to OSB’s recreation center for a healthy yogurt buffet bar breakfast provided by TSET Healthy Living Program,” said Doug Walton, who coordinates that program at the Muskogee County Health Department. 

OSB serves preschool-age students through 12th grade with superior education opportunities that meet all state academic requirements plus specialized instruction including braille and orientation and mobility training and optimum use of low vision technology and adaptive equipment. OSB also offers free evaluations and outreach services for students with visual disabilities attending other public schools.
