Hon. Minister for Education, Petter Saint Jean has announced that his Ministry has made the decision to push back the reopening of school.
Following the passing of Tropical Storm Erika on Thursday August 27th 2015 the Ministry of Education has conducted a preliminary assessment of 75 schools across the island.
Several of these schools including the Dominica Grammar School, the Roseau Primary School and the Grand Bay Primary are being used as housing by citizens affected by Tropical Storm Erika.
The Minister has asked principals and teachers to report to school in casual wear from Wednesday September 2nd 2015 to September 4th to facilitate cleaning.
He urges the general public to take note of Ministry of Education and Government notices.
Hon Saint Jean encouraged persons to stay strong during these challenging times and work together to rebuild Dominica.
