MOUNT VERNON, Wash. —

More students at Mount Vernon at trying something new: walking to school.

Students at Centennial and Little Mountain elementaries are walking or riding bikes to test what happens when the district eliminates school bus stops within one mile of school. A pilot project to test school safety zones is starting Monday.

The Skagit Valley Herald reports (http://bit.ly/18ck8lN) the state will no longer pay for busing within a mile of school unless it's unsafe to walk.

Police are asking drivers to be extra vigilant and pay attention to crossing guards.
