BVI SDA School switches to online learning after COVID-19 positive case

BVI SDA School switches to online learning after COVID-19 positive case

The reopening of physical school has been short-lived for students and staff of the BVI Seventh-day Adventist School in Sea Cows Bay as it has reverted to virtual learning after a student tested positive for COVID-19.

Face to face learning had only resumed on Monday, September 6, 2021.

The school’s principal Wade W. Tobin informed parents of the abrupt closure via a letter on the evening of September 9, 2021.

He said despite a rather promising start to the academic year, the COVID-19 mitigation and social distancing protocols established by the institution have been extensively tested over the past few days.

“It is therefore unfortunate that I must inform you that one of our high school students has tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, the school’s protocol measures have been activated in consultation with the Public Health Authorities.

“You are hereby advised that effective Friday 10th September 2021, the institution will conduct classes virtually until further notice. May the Lord provide the watch care and wisdom needed at this time, as we navigate the challenges that this pandemic has created,” Mr Tobin wrote.

The BVI Seventh-day Adventist School consists of Primary and Secondary Divisions, which are both housed in one building.
