A release issued by the Ministry of Educating through the Barbados Government Information Service early Saturday morning said Classes three and four students would report to the Jackson Seventh-Day Adventist Church, a short distance away, for classes.

“Additionally, Class two students of Sharon Primary will be accommodated at the Holy Innocents Primary School at Ayshford, St. Thomas. Transportation has been arranged for them.

“It will leave the Sharon Moravian Church Yard at 8:30 am on Monday, September 30, and the return trip at the end of school at 3 pm, will leave the Holy Innocents Primary School and return to the Sharon Moravian Church, where parents and guardians are asked to collect their children or wards.”

The statement added “all other students of Sharon Primary will remain at home” with the Ministry continuing its update to parents and guardians as necessary.

The schools had been closed three weeks into the 2018-2019 term as a result of an environmental problem at the adjoining school plants.

The Ministry of Health and Wellness completed investigations at the two sites and the Ministry of Education, Technological and Vocational Training said they would open the Maria Holder Nursery School-Sharon to students on Wednesday, September 25.

However, after a meeting with parents and teachers at the school uncertainty and anger over the situation forced education officials to close the school building indefinitely and relocate students.
