The Ministry of Education has put all schools on alert as the country prepares for Tropical Storm Sandy which could strengthen into a hurricane before it hits Jamaica.
Education Minister Ronald Thwaites says a bulletin has been issued to schools for administrators to take the necessary precaution.
Thwaites says the ministry is in close contact with the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODEPM) as it seeks to ensure the safety of students, staff and school plants.
He says the education ministry will continue to assess the situation and will await word from ODEPM about whether schools should be closed.
