Suspended student returns to class By RON CALDWELL Staff Wrilnr The suspension of a Grade 15 sludcnL aL Eric Rivers Ilifil School in Milk River has been overturned by llic Counly o Warner schools committee. The student was suspcndec indefinitely on Thursday, [01 Ihc second Ijme since Noveni bcr, lor a Icclmicai violalion o a county rule which prohibits students from driving their cars during the noor hour. The student involved drove liis car from the front of the school to an adjoining side street to have a smoke. The issue was the subject o! tlie first ever full meeting o: the County of Warner schools committee and the Milk River school board held Monday night in Warner. The two-hour public meeting was followed by a closed ses sioin involving the two groups of school authorities at which time the decision was made to reinstate the student. However, the decision stated that the student could return to classes today on the condition that he come by bus and dis- play a "proper attitude" The student lives in Coutts, a dis- tance of 13 miles. Erie Rivers principal .T i m Anderson told Ihe meeling that tlie rule is a difficult one to en- force but officials lo ad- minister it fairly. He said he ordered the sus- pension after tlie student did not heed a warning to leave the car at home after he had been caught driving it at noon. "I told him lo take the car home and leave it said Mr. Anderson. "But he continued to bring 11 to school." The student's parents told the meeting that Iheir son was act- ing on orders from them to re- turn to school with their car. They said they made the de- cision after clicking with the RCMP and the mayor of Milk River and learning there was no reason their car could not be on the streets of Milk River. A meeting of the school board was requested by the principal on Thursday to dis- cuss the situation. School board members told last night's meet- ing that they were left with the impression that Mr. Anderson did not plan any action until after the Monday night session. However, one Milk River school board member said the student was suspended less than 10 minutes after the meet- ing with the principal. "He was in my shop 10 min- utes aflcr Ip.ft the school a 3 he said. "I couldn't believe he had been suspended." During last night's closer meeling, the two boards dccid cd that the suspension ordci was not justified under the cir cumstanccs. Mr. Anderson had told the meeting earlier that other stu dents have violated the regula tion but this was the first lime a student has been suspended The board felt it would be un fair lo impose such strict mea sures on one student while al lowing others to continue the practice.
