Teachers at ESHS junior campus reportedly stage sickout
BVI News has been informed that teachers at the Elmore Stoutt High School (ESHS) junior campus in Road Town have staged a sickout.
The protest reportedly involves several educators at the educational facility.
It is not yet clear what specifically is being protested but BVI News understands there is a myriad of issues for which the teachers are aggrieved.
The sickout is said to have affected regular scheduled classes but the extent of the impact is unclear. Unconfirmed reports are that some junior students who turned up for classes this morning have since left.
Our news centre will provide more on this developing story as information becomes available.
In the meantime, this reported sickout has come at a time when ESHS’s Pasea campus for senior students is also being plagued with issues.
Because of a major air-quality problem at the senior school, classes have returned online so the school can be cleaned of mould that has infested the building.
The senior school closed today and will remain this way for the next few days.
