Schools close early

Social Share

Two schools are getting an early Easter break as a result of the fire at B’s Bottle Depot.
The fire may be extinguished, but the effects of the blaze were still being felt yesterday when nearby Sharon Primary School and the Maria Holder Nursery School were closed around 12 noon. They will remain closed today ahead of the official start of the Easter vacation.
The closure is as a result of the environmental conditions at the two schools occasioned by Monday’s fire.
The schools, which were inspected by the Environmental Protection Department yesterday led by chief Jeffrey Headley, are scheduled to be cleaned so that any residue or particles may be removed.
Yesterday’s action was taken after teachers and students at both schools complained of a burning sensation in their throats and on their skin which caused them to itch. A teacher at the nursery school reportedly also lost her voice. (SP)
