All DOE schools will reopen Tuesday, except four

Posted: Updated:

While students took the day off, officials from all 41 Department of Education schools were out cleaning and assessing school damages. Superintendent Jon Fernandez said, "Our effort is to push and try to get as many schools open as possible. I was out at the shelters this morning at the Tamuning and Agana Heights gyms, talking to the families and the students, and the kids really want to come back, so long as they're able to".

The Joint Information Center confirmed that all DOE schools will resume operations on Tuesday, except for Astumbo Elementary, Carbullido Elementary, Astumbo Middle School and Okkodo High School. These schools will remain closed due to water issues.

Fernandez said he will ensure busses are provided to students at shelters, and that students severely affected by Typhoon Dolphin won't be penalized if they come to school without uniforms.
