Dellwood School To Reopen On Wednesday

September 7, 2017

The Ministry of Education announced that Dellwood Middle School will open officially for all students on Wednesday, September 13, 2017.

Minister of Education and Workforce Development Diallo Rabain explained: “Yesterday, I met with the principal, parents and staff to inform them that the Ministry of Health and the Government Health and Safety Officer has cleared the areas of concern for occupancy after receiving the air quality report carried out by an independent company.

“The repair work that was initially scheduled for six weeks has successfully been completed in four weeks, allowing for the school to reopen on Wednesday, September 13.

“Dellwood Middle School teachers will be able to access the school on Friday, September 8th to allow them to take inventory of classroom needs. Teachers will use Monday andTuesday [Sept 11 and 12] to finalize classrooms and plan lessons for students.

“Finishing touches will continue this week and into next, but the essentials for teaching and learning will be in place for a successful school opening and school year.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the Minister of Public Works, the Hon. Lt. Col. David Burch JP, MP and his team, the Department of Education facilities team, the Health Department officers, school custodians and the three independent contractors who have all pulled together to get the school facilities ready.

“I am grateful for the support of the Dellwood principal, Mrs. Tina Duke, the PTSA and staff who have made every effort to ensure that our students have minimal disruption to their learning.”

    There is a large dead tree on the Dellwood grounds with a big bough that overhangs the road – across from the mosque – only a matter of time before it comes down. This could cause a serious accident.

    Soooo can MOED show us pictures of the competed rooms?
    What about the rooms that were not deemed worthy to be tested for mold and asbestos, like some utility closets?
    Have the rodent nests been addressed?
    Govt sponsored work that was completed 2 weeks ahead of time???

    I smell manure of the male cow variety.

    Will the contract payout be reduced as well since it took two weeks less time to perform the remediation works? Seems fair to me if they priced this project in terms of hours , days and weeks to perform.

      The assumption is that the price was per terms of hours, days and weeks to perform. It is likely that the private contractors put in overtime with the hopes that an earlier start date could be achieved.
