Come Monday, March 15, day care facilities and day nurseries will reopen their doors, but further discussion is still needed for the reopening of schools.
Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley disclosed this in her address to the nation from Ilaro Court, this evening.
She stated: “I only today just received a note from the Ministry of Education, which has to be the subject of discussion on the Common Entrance Exam next week, but the Minister of Education is going to have to be in discussions with teachers and others.”
Ms. Mottley noted that since the Easter vacation was approaching further announcements would have to be made as to what would be permitted.
“We are conscious and are sensitive to the fact that there are different needs for different categories of children, and that some children may require more intense support, and therefore, it is urgent that those meetings be had next week, and by the next time that we speak, we should be in a position, if not before, to advise you on what the arrangements are for schools,” the Prime Minister said.
