Kiss And Ride Expands

A program to provide for easier and safer pick-up and drop off of students will go in place in Atikokan at the end of the month.

North Star Community School plans to institute the Kiss and Ride initiative.

Principal Beth Fairfield says a loop used by buses will be utilized.

Fairfield says they will allow parents to drop their children off prior to the buses arrival and pick them up after the buses have left to avoid conflicts.

School support staff will be on site to assist children in and out of their parent's vehicles.

The program is already in place at schools in Fort Frances and Thunder Bay.
