All public schools will hold classes Monday - except FBLG

Posted: Updated:

At long last, here's the word on what we've all been waiting most of the weekend to hear: will there be classes for public schools on Monday? After principals completed their assessments and reported them back to superintendent Jon Fernandez, the answer to your question is YES...with the exception of one. 

There will be the normally-scheduled opening of public schools on Monday for all campuses - but F.B. Leon Guerrero Middle School in Yigo will not, due to water damage and flooding. So all other schools except F.B. Leon Guerrero will open at the normal times for the first day of classes.

You can review the bussing schedules for the following villages: Agat, Barrigada, Dededo, Inarajan, Ordot, Tamuning, Yigo, and Yona.

Tropical Storm Goni is now gone and continues to move away from the Marianas. It made it closest point of approach by passing between Rota and Tinian between 4 and 5 o'clock this morning.   But as many of you know,  we may have escaped destructive winds, we did experience relentless rain. Goni  dumped several inches of precipitation on Guam, leaving several roads flooded and in some cases impassible, we've also brought you many astonishing pictures of the flooding in housing areas such as East Gayinero in Yigo on our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook feeds.

Some other stats about the tropical storm: five expectant mothers checked in at the Guam Memorial Hospital; additionally 173 residents sought shelter in the three emergency shelters that were opened overnight.

As for southern residents who are without water as a result of GWA securing the Ugum Water Treatment Plant, crews from the utility agency were reportedly working on getting the plant back online.. if you are still without water, call 646-4211.

As for power, the Joint Information Center reported earlier today there were some pockets of power outages in Tumon, Yigo and Barrigada, but GPA crews were on top of it. If  you don't have power call 475-1472.
