The Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development announces the postponement of the reopening of secondary schools to Monday September 14, 2015 due to forecasted inclement weather associated with two tropical systems in the upcoming days.
Secondary schools were originally expected to open on Wednesday, September 9.
A tropical wave is expected to produce rain across the island on Wednesday, while a weakened Tropical Storm Grace, now a Tropical Depression, is expected to bring rains by Friday.
Therefore, schools, primary and secondary, will reopen on Monday September 14, 2015 with the exception of the Pichelin Primary School, Delices Primary School, Jones Beaupierre Primary School, Coulibistrie Primary School, Colihaut Primary School and the Roseau Primary School which will remain closed until further notice.
The Ministry of Education has made arrangements to provide water to schools where there is still no pipe borne water and solicits the support of the general public in ensuring that this objective is achieved.
The ministry wishes to state that the safety and security of our students and staff is paramount, therefore, we thank all for working with us as we continue to provide regular updates in the days ahead.
