Students from L'École secondaire catholique Le Relais and Glengarry District High School in Alexandria were among the thousands who staged demonstrations Wednesday in province-wide protests against the Ontario government's education cutbacks.
More than 100 Le Relais students and about 65 GDHS students walked out of classes for about an hour.
Another day, another snow day for area students.
If you managed to dig out from yesterday's snow, you can look forward to freezing rain today, when,
of course, school bus transportation has been cancelled for the fourth consecutive day.
Driving is an adventure again as snow has given way to black ice and slush.
And some parking lots are like rinks.
But we can anticipate a return to lower temperatures later today.
The Ontario Ministry of Education has confirmed its intention to provide funding to build an addition at Roxmore Public School in Avonmore in order to accommodate additional students from North Stormont PS in Berwick.
At the same time, the province is financing the consolidation of Cornwall CVS and St. Lawrence SS into one secondary grades 7-12 school.
