Some secondary schools closing early today, November 4

The Ministry of Education, Innovation, Gender Relations and Sustainable Development regrets to inform parents and guardians of students attending the Bocage, Entrepot and Sir Ira Simmons secondary schools that due to inadequate teacher supervision at these schools, classes will be dismissed early today, November 4, 2019.

The ministry over the last few days and in response to the concerns of stakeholders, has undertaken significant work including deep cleaning, mold remediation and pre and post air quality testing at the various schools.

The education of the nation’s children remains a top priority for the ministry, and every effort is being made to minimize loss of instructional time.
