Schools to remain closed on Tuesday

...Garcia confirms decision

Education Minister Anthony Garcia

All schools in Trinidad as well as in Tobago will remain closed tomorrow, due to expected severe weather conditions.

This is according to Education Minister Anthony Garcia.

He told the Express a few minutes ago:

“Based on the advice that I have received from the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management (ODPM), all schools in Trinidad will be closed tomorrow. I have also been in contact with the Chief Secretary of the Tobago House of Assembly and he has informed me that they have also taken the decision to close all schools tomorrow. And this is to ensure that the safety of our students, our teachers and all those who operate within our schools is maintained. So because of safety issues we are closing all schools in Trinidad and in Tobago.”
