SOUNDBITE: Greg Chatlin, Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools director of education PLACELINE: Humboldt, Saskatchewan CREDIT: The Canadian Press STORYLINE: Attention in the Saskatchewan town where 15 members of the Humboldt Broncos hockey team were killed in a bus crash is turning to supporting students as they return to school without some of their classmates. Kevin Garinger, director of education for the Horizon School Division and president of the Broncos, said schools were closed Monday after the junior hockey team's bus collided with a semi truck northeast of Saskatoon on Friday. Classes resumed Tuesday but Garinger says the focus will be on the well-being of students and staff rather than the daily curriculum.
