In honor of International Walk to School Day on Wednesday, parents, teachers, staffers and police officers escorted 100 to 150 children to Pinellas Central Elementary School in Pinellas Park. Principal Cara Walsh, center, helps a group cross 58th Street at 106th Terrace N. They started in the parking lot at the old Staples store at U.S. 19 and 110th Avenue N and headed to the school a few blocks away at 10501 58th St. N. International Walk to School Day promotes bicycle and pedestrian safety and physical fitness for students. Schools throughout Pinellas arranged group walks. Pinellas Central’s walk was organized by Sheryl Miller, a longtime worker at the school.
