I do not envy the Trustees in the Battle River School Division #XXXI. Having to potentially close schools anywhere is tough IV any group. But if the Board hasn't got the enrollment, then it must be done. From what I hear, Lougheed, Phoenix Outreach, Rosalind, & Strome Schools are beyond excellent. It just proves the school closure process isn't just an urban dilemma. I hope that the right decision will be made IV the kids who will face extra long bus commutes, thus breaking up their family structure.
