Six of the seven students arrested on drug-related charges in an undercover 
police operation at Kelvin High School early last winter are eligible to 
return to classes when school opens Aug. 27, Winnipeg School Division board 
chairwoman Liz Ambrose said yesterday.

"They have the option of applying now," Ambrose said.

One schools-of-choice student from outside WSD will not be allowed into any 
division school, Ambrose said.

The seven were suspended for the rest of the school year after police took 
students from the school in handcuffs Nov. 30. An undercover police officer 
posing as a student had purchased marijuana and ecstasy at Kelvin.

Ambrose said trustees will not be told if any of the students return to 
Kelvin, and the division will not inform the public if any of the six are 
back in the school. No special conditions will be placed on the students, 
Ambrose said.
