More Students May Have To Walk

The Lakehead District School Board is considering expanding its current walking boundaries for students. As it stands students living within a 1.6-kilometre radius must walk to school. David Wright is Superintendent of Business and says no exact numbers have been put forth just yet. He does note that average weather temperatures and snowfall are also taken into consideration. Wright says trustees are putting the idea forward to promote a healthy and active lifestyle among students.
