Lester Vaughan update coming

One month after the closure of Lester Vaughan School, teachers and concerned parents will have a chance to meet with the Ministry of Education to hear what will be the next move.

The ministry gave that assurance yesterday after they were pressed by parents who questioned the state of affairs at the Cane Garden, St Thomas institution.

Their questions, many of which were highlighted in a letter, written by the Parent-Teachers Association (PTA), came about a month after several teachers and a few students complained of feeling ill, prompting the closure of the school in February. The school has since engaged in online classes, which some parents said was disadvantaging to some students.

“Parents are pleading for a comprehensive study to be done on the environment, bearing in mind the previous school that had environmental issues that resulted in its closing.

“Will this most recent test be any different from previous tests? Were there any tests done to identify sewerage gases being emitted? Have the symptoms that have been experienced by our children and the staff been considered when these tests were done?” the parents wrote. (TG)
