Like clockwork bright yellow buses roll right up to the front doors at Greenbrier Elementary everyday, but not this morning.

Students at Greenbrier Elementary are joining other children and families around the world today in International Walk to School Day.

"We will have staff on duty helping students get to school," said Malcolm Jarrell, the principal at Greenbrier Elementary.

Students riding the bus will get dropped off at the bottom of a nature trail that leads up to the school campus.

Parents who drop their children off to school everyday are also encouraged to park their car a few streets away from school and join in on a leisurely morning walk.

The school has been celebrating International Walk to School Day for four years.

"It's something that is a tradition. It's part of a school culture," said Jarrell.
