Back to School

The Vernon School district is ready for Tuesday's return to class.  Almost 50 new teachers have been hired and several school grounds have portable classrooms that were installed over the summer.

Enrolment figures won't be know till later in the week.
  
I-C-B-C is urging drivers to keep safety in mind as children return to school.  Motorists are asked to give themselves extra travel time, avoid distractions and keep watch for children, especially around school zones.
    
I-C-B-C says 370 children are injured in crashes each year in B-C, while six children are killed each year.
