Situation Update – Reopening of Schools


Against the background of moderate improvements in the weather and the forecast for a continuation of this trend, the Ministry of Education (MOE), after consultation with the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM) is advising that it is deemed safe for most schools to reopen on Friday, October 1, 2010.

The MOE/ODPEM advise that for schools located in areas hardest hit by the inclement weather and where unstable conditions persist, a thorough evaluation should be undertaken to determine whether normal operations can be restored. Parents are also reminded to assess the situation to ensure their children can commute safely to and from school.
