Borrow Grandma's tricycle, add rain fenders, and get some coveralls.

You will beat the school traffic and stay warmer than you do in the cold car.
5 miles each trip should take less than 30 minutes and 2 hour between each trip should be plenty to recover for the next one.

Another idea is a mylar lined AC cover (for covering the home air conditioner in winter) trimmed to fit over the engine.
