Parents urged: Call schools
Parents and guardians in the Western, Northern and Central divisions are urged to contact their children’s schools directly to determine whether or not schools are scheduled for re- opening today.
Schools that are currently in use as evacuation centres will remain closed until arrangements can be made for families seeking shelter at these centres. The Ministry of National Disaster Management and the Ministry of Education are working together to ensure the safety of students whose schools will re-open today.
Both ministries are calling on all school managers and officials to exercise caution and discretion for schools that need to remain closed.
