Vernon students in the SD22 school division head back to class on Wednesday.
On top of new school clothes, new classes and teachers, students being dropped at Ecole Beairsto Elementary in Vernon will have a brand-new drop-off area and expanded parking lot.
Our Maintenance dept has been busy over the summer creating a new student drop off zone@EcoleBeairsto . There are 2 areas: an expanded parking lot for staff/visitors & a dedicated student drop off zone. A much needed improvement. See you Wednesday! pic.twitter.com/7MgrGPIszh
