The Ministry of Education has announced the closure of schools on Thursday, June 22, 2023, due to the impending passage of Tropical Storm Bret.

“The Department of Education informs all educators that educational instruction will be suspended and schools will remain closed,” a notice from the Acting Deputy Chief Education Officer – Instruction said.

The notice trusted that all necessary pre-disaster activities would have taken place.

And it expressed regret regarding any inconvenience resulting from the temporary school closure.

However, a senior Education Ministry official told St. Lucia Times that the school closure would not affect students writing the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) on Thursday morning.

Saint Lucia is under a Tropical Storm warning, meaning tropical storm conditions are possible within 36 hours.

The Saint Lucia Meteorological Services expects Tropical Storm Bret to bring three to six inches of rainfall from Thursday to Friday.

On the forecast track, Bret’s centre should approach the Lesser Antilles on Thursday.

According to the forecast, Bret should move across the Lesser Antilles late Thursday and Thursday night, then westward across the eastern and central Caribbean Sea Friday and Saturday.
