TN Tatem will not open to students until Monday

TN Tatem Middle School will not open its doors to students today, Government announced yesterday.

But teachers are being asked to attend today.

“Following receipt of concerns from staff, joint representatives of the Ministries of Public Works and Education inspected the school and agreed that there were outstanding matters that must be addressed before students can return,” Government stated in a press release.

“Therefore, it is intended for Public Works staff to remain on site today to address those works to ensure the safety and health of students. These works include repairs to water damage, plumbing and flooring.

“While assurances were given that these works would be completed in time for opening, circumstances did not allow for this objective to be met. Once these works are complete, custodians can then complete their cleaning.

“This will mean that teachers will be required to report to work tomorrow to continue their preparations but that students will now report for their first day of school on Monday, 9 September.

“The joint Ministries apologise for this inconvenience to parents, staff and students but agree that these matters require immediate attention before students return.”
