The Ministry of Education, Youth and Information, in continuing on the advice of the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management has ordered that schools continue to remain closed on Tuesday October 4, 2016. This is in response to the impending arrival of Hurricane Matthew which is expected within the next 12 to 24 hours.

The Metrological Service of Jamaica has indicated that Hurricane Matthew has  maintained its trajectory and Category 4 (four) status. We encourage school administrators to stay tuned to the media in order to receive regular updates from the Ministry as the situation unfolds over the next two days.  “Due to the unpredictable nature of this massive system, a hurricane warning is still in effect for the island, despite the fair weather conditions at the moment,” stated Senator Reid.

Further updates from the Ministry will be issued through the media as the situation demands.
