ALEXANDRIA, Ontario – Students at Glengarry District High School (GDHS) walked out of their classes on Tuesday morning to protest the Upper Canada School Board’s (UCDSB) proposal to close their school as a part of their Pupil Accommodation Review.
Pending funding from the provincial government, GDHS could be closed and its students sent to Vankleek Hill C.I. and Tagwi Secondary School.
The UCDSB expressed their disappointment at the protest and warned that the students put themselves at risk by leaving their classes. The Board also reminded the public that students can express themselves through their web survey on the Building a Future Pupil Accommodation Review.
