Untalan to remain closed; reopen in Tiyan

Posted: Updated:

Guam - L.P. Untalan Middle School students will remain out of school for the next week and a half as officials begin preparing Core Tech's facility in Tiyan.  Interim DOE Superintendent Taling Taitano says UMS classes will begin at the Tiyan facility tentatively on January 24 depending if officials are able to obtain all of the necessary permits. 

On Thursday and Friday the school underwent several inspections that resulted in the Barrigada campus being shut down for various safety and health violations.  Taitano, in a press release issued Saturday, said the school will remain closed until further notice.  DOE is soliciting the assistance of the community to help make the move possible in such a short time. 

Individuals who would like to volunteer or donate to assist the effort are asked to contact Andy Leon Guerrero at 888-4127 or aleonguerrero@gdoe.net. Taitano said the department would release more information when it becomes available as the Guam Education Board and DOE management work on putting timelines in place as well as developing the adjusted school calendar for Untalan Middle School students and faculty.
