The Ministry of Education, Technological and Vocational Training has advised that a number of schools will have a delayed opening, and not start on Monday, September 9, 2019.
Following construction and rehabilitative works at these schools, which contributed to excessive dust and the repositioning of furniture and equipment, there is a need for these school plants to be industrially cleaned, materials sanitized, furniture repositioned, school meals serving areas reequipped, and teachers allowed to stage their classrooms before students can be readmitted.
The following secondary schools will start on Wednesday, September 11: Alexandra School, Grantley Adams Memorial Secondary, Frederick Smith Secondary and Princess Margaret Secondary.
The following primary schools will start on Monday, September 16: Ann Hill School, Bay Primary, Belmont Primary, Eagle Hall Primary, Luther Thorne Primary, Milton Lynch Primary, St. Bartholomew Primary, St. Giles Primary School, St. John Primary, St. Margaret Primary, St. Paul’s Primary, St. Philip Primary, St. Stephen’s Nursery, Welches Primary, Wesley Hall Junior, and Wilkie Cumberbatch Primary.
The teaching and non-teaching staff are to report to the schools and take directions from the principal as it relates to getting the school ready for opening.
All other schools will start on Monday, September 9. The Ministry apologizes for any inconvenience which may be caused.
