In response to the recent flash flooding that swept through the territory on Tuesday, the Elmore Stoutt High School (ESHS) has taken proactive measures to ensure the safety and well-being of its students and staff.

The school has activated remote learning for Wednesday, May 8, as cleanup efforts commence to address the aftermath of the flooding.

While the full extent of the damage to the ESHS campus remains under assessment, preliminary reports indicate that several areas of the school were impacted by the flooding. In a statement addressed to parents, the school’s administration team confirmed the need for a thorough cleanup of the affected spaces.

“We will be closely monitoring the situation on campus and conducting a thorough cleanup of the affected spaces,” the administration team stated, emphasizing their commitment to swiftly address the damage caused by the flooding.

In an effort to expedite the cleanup process, ESHS has extended an invitation to students seeking community service hours to assist with the cleanup efforts. Furthermore, the administration has assured parents that updates regarding the resumption of face-to-face sessions will be communicated as soon as practicable.

Efforts to obtain information from the Minister of Education, Honourable Sharie De Castro, regarding the impact of the flooding on other schools in the affected areas were unsuccessful at the time of publication.
