Students in Milaca Public Schools may soon be able to ride their snowmobiles to class again. Recently, students arriving by sled have been told to turn around. That's because riding a snowmobile to school violates a city ordinance, and district policy prohibits snowmobiles on school grounds.
But in a school board meeting Tuesday night, Milaca High School principal Damian Patnode said he has found a possible solution. He plans to ask the city council to grant an easement, which would allow students to ride across publicly-owned property.
"The only real solution to this without putting students into a situation of violating city ordinance," Patnode said.
Students hope something can be worked out soon.
"The whole point of being on a snowmobile is to feel freedom, get outside," student Brett Olson said.
Patnode plans to present his idea to city council members on Thursday.
