A public meeting on overcrowding at Pierre Elliot Trudeau School in St. Thomas, and how that might affect Port Stanley Public School starting in September of 2016, will be held at the Port Stanley PS library on Thursdsay night, Oct. 15, starting at 6:30 p.m.
Mayor David Marr told a Central Elgin council meeting Tuesday, Oct. 13, he was concerned the meeting about an “attendance area review” was being held on such short notice.
He didn’t know how the public would know about the meeting, when Thames Valley District School Board didn’t seem to be going out of its way to advertise the forum.
He urged parents and others to attend the meeting if at all possible.
The school board had previously floated a plan to transfer some pupils from PET’s French-immersion program to relieve overcrowding at that school and fill empty classrooms at Port Stanley PS, but protests from St. Thomas parents quashed that.
