Walk to School Day - Oct 4

National Walk and Roll to School Day is on Wednesday, October 4th. This day is meant to raise awareness of road safety around walking/biking students and school buses, to encourage students to develop healthy walking habits, and to remind us all to get outside and enjoy physical activity, fresh air, and sunshine! In Minnesota, we know how important it is to get outside (no matter the weather!) so we hope you’ll pencil in this date and keep an eye out for more information on our walk-to-school activities!

Students from grades K-12 are invited to participate in the event on October 4th. Students 9-12 will be invited to walk the High School track that morning prior to the school day starting. Students K-8 who ride the bus will be dropped off at Neighbors Restaurant to walk to school. Staff and other administrators will be on site to join in the fun and to supervise the walk. The Princeton Police Department will be present as well to ensure student safety and to help direct traffic.

New this year, we will not be handing out snacks to students during the walk. Instead, all students will be invited to enjoy a free breakfast when they arrive to school.

Princeton Public Schools recently took advantage of an opportunity to refinance a portion of the district's outstanding debt and generate more than a half-million dollars in savings for taxpayers.

On November 9, 2023, the school district closed on the issuance of $12.51 million in refunding bonds to refinance debt originally issued in 2014. By refinancing and paying off some of the principal early, the district will save an estimated $512,684 in interest payments over the remaining life of the bonds.

Princeton Public Schools is seeking students, families, staff and community members to serve on a district-supported task force to study school start times.
