School field trips not being cancelled

Public schools in the city are not being told to cancel field trips in the wake of this weeks tragic accident. 4 year old Willow Scott-Hannam died after being injured during such an excursion to Fort William Historical Park. Director of Education Cathy Siemieniuk says schools are being asked to review trips to make sure they comply with board policy. As such, she says there's no blanket decision on field trips but schools are taking the extra step to make sure the process is followed. Siemieniuk says it will take several weeks to complete the internal investigation into the accident.
