The Ministry of Education has stated only schools that have been affected by the rains and those that are being used as shelters will be closed.
In a press release today, the Education Minister issued a call for parents and students to be vigilant during these rains.
Understanding that the education of our students is of paramount importance the Ministry will be making all efforts and working with stakeholders to return all schools to a state of normalcy in the shortest possible time.
Minister Garcia also stated “At times like these we have to step up and be our brother’s keeper.
I understand that parents may be concerned about schools being used as shelters and classes being disrupted but I assure you that we will all work together to compensate for the class time that is lost while being gracious to our fellow countrymen that have been affected.”
