Schools reopen after heavy rains

Acting Chief Education Officer, Orlandette Crabbe, issued a press release informing the public that schools reopen for face-to-face classes today, excluding the Ivan Dawson Primary School.

The Department of Disaster of Management (DDM) advised the closure of all public schools in the territory on June 6 due to heavy rainfall. This was done to ensure public safety.

The heavy rainfall has subsided and the Public Works Department have begun clearing roads in major traffic areas.

Several sections of the territory sustained major infrastructural damage from the heavy rainfall. Roads on the main island have been undermined by the excessive water, and utility poles and trees were also impacted in some areas.

The rains caused damage to both private and public infrastructure.

In the meantime, yesterday’s school closure indicates the importance of disaster preparedness and the need for continued vigilance during the hurricane season.

      Don’t count the chickens before they crack out the egg buddy. The way the weather has been going lately, expect the unexpected.

    • @big shady says:

      From the way I see it, as quiet as it is kept, the Premier is in some serious trouble. When a leader is out of the Country and he/she is instructed to return, something is brewing.Whom ever instructed him to return, thank you. It is time to put him in check.The Premier simply thought he could do whatever he pleases because he have POWER!!!!. WELL MR. PREMIER, YOUR POWER IS SLOWLY DERAILING. The joke is he came back under the cover of darkness in a trench coat and Fedora hat to hide an embarrassing moment. lol.

        Correct, he is in some kind of trouble if he was instructed to return back to the Territory. Bet this time he listened. I did not see the need for the Premier to go to the Turks and Caicos.The head of Immigration should have been the one to attend the conference. The New York trip on Climate Control would have simply a waste of time as well. The Premier has his nose in to many things his nose should not be in and want to control, dominate and should be the only one to have the first and final say. Since he got involved with the Tourist Board seems like everything went downhill/south. There is a whole lot of incompetency going on in Tourist Board.

  2. Nice End of the week laugh says:

    Dude came back to the Island under the cover of darkness dressed in a Humphrey Bogart trench coat and matching Fedora pulled down over his eyes.

  3. Honestly says:

    It can rain and flood until the chickens come home to roost. The Island is cursed, evil and full of parasites that needs to be washed out to sea.
