The schools, after much assessments, provided, like other subsidized schools, a list of emergency school items, for both the classroom and office. The public schools received the items on Tuesday, November 28th. The schools received similar items as the subsidized schools received such as laptops, filing cabinets, pens, paper, trollies to assist with moving boxes, tables, chairs, and many more items that will aid in the teachers and staff bouncing back better and ensure our students are provided a positive and conducive learning environment post-Hurricane Irma.
