Chancellor Walcott’s school-visit schedule doesn’t stop for Thanksgiving

Chancellor Dennis Walcott, who visits schools more frequently than his predecessors did, is not staying away from schools even during the Thanksgiving vacation.

On Wednesday, Walcott — a self-proclaimed fitness freak — participated in a “turkey trot” at P.S. 36 in the Bronx, then joined students at Baychester Middle School for their annual pre-Thanksgiving flag football game.

Today, before heading home for a meal of his own, he’s going to M.S. 53 in Queens for that school’s holiday feast. The Far Rockaway middle school had many families affected by last year’s Superstorm Sandy.
