With Jessica Ridgeway on everyone’s mind in Colorado it’s important to note that safety is the number priority of all school districts throughout the state and School District 51 in Grand Junction explains that nearly 1600 students walk to school everyday. And with fewer school bus routes schools make sure they account for all their children and generally if a child does not come in they are informed by their parents. School District officials say that whatever number is on the emergency contact list they go through it systematically and contact them. With all the school bus changes schools are focusing on teaching children safety tips and to have parents go over that with their kids as well.
