    Cases of WATER should have been delivered at these Schools! Where are the parents supposed to get the water from? This is simply unacceptable ! The Relief supplies were shipped out for exactly that purpose. Our children deserve better!

      I agree with you in as far as drinking water is concerned, but with over 500 students and teachers in the schools, using the toilets will be an issue.!

    “Parents are again reminded to provide drinking water for their children”. May I ask, what exactly is the role of the Skeritt administration? Don’t they know that it is the responsibility of the government to supply the basic necessities for both children and teachers prior to school reopening? When is this government going to get things right? Because the tropical storm has destroyed the infrastructure does not mean that it has diminished the importance or significance nor the basic needs of a proud people. The government should step up and provide drinking water for all the schools that they see fit to open or keep the schools closed if they are ill-prepared.
