AMDSB says Central hill sanded for safety reasons, not to prevent sledding

A decision at Stratford Central Secondary School has caused a bit of a stir.

The hill on the property, a popular tobogganing spot in the city, has been sanded.

A number of Stratford residents have taken to Facebook to voice their displeasure with the action.

Steve Howe is the Manager of Communications for the Avon Maitland District School Board.

He says it was a safety decision:

Some people believe it’s a sign tobogganing is being banned at the popular sledding spot.

Howe says that’s not the case:

Howe adds that this isn’t the first time the hill has been treated:

As it stands now there is currently no tobogganing ban in Stratford or on AMDSB properties.
