SCHOOLS CLOSED THURSDAY AND FRIDAY

Despite weeks of school already missed by Virgin Islands children, schools will be closed Thursday and Friday for the Thanksgiving holiday.
The announcement was made Monday in a two-sentence statement from the Education Department which said, "No changes have been made to the school calendar to date."
Public school students missed over three weeks of school due to a teachers' strike that was ended by court order the second week of November. Many children started school late as construction on several schools was not completed in time for school to start.
The release did not indicate when Education will begin to develop a plan for making up the lost school days.
