Elgin Parent Council has been approached by Green Communities Canada to consider joining their Active & Safe Routes to School program. Council was provided with information at a recent meeting from the program manager, Wallace Beaton.
The program offers some potential benefits for the school and its students, but with a significant commitment required from school administration, staff and volunteers. Parent council will decide if we agree to make the commitment to join the program and if we recommend that Elgin school staff and administration participate as well. Some information about the program can be found in the following document: Ottawa STP Fact Sheet 2016-17
