Geneviève Malouin-Diraddo, a member of the Glengarry District High School steering committee, sports a “Glengarry SOS -- Save Our Schools” T-shirt. The group will join a rally opposing school closures at 9 a.m. Friday at Bridgewood Public School in Cornwall.

MPP Grant Crack sent a letter to GDHS school council, saying, “I don’t want this school to close.” He added the Glengarry community needs to work together to find “a local solution” that “ensures our schools have enough students to offer a full range of programming and a vibrant learning environment.” The Liberal MPP pledged: "You can count on my support as I am very committed to doing my part."
