One private school is shut down until further notice with two others set to move students out of the classroom to virtual platforms.

Both Saltus Grammar School and Warwick Academy have made the decision to make the move in the wake of the global coronavirus pandemic.

A spokesperson at Saltus said the transition takes place as of today (March 17).

“Attendance and all classes will continue remotely through our school’s virtual model until further notice. Non-essential visitors to Saltus’ campuses will be discouraged while vendors/suppliers to the school may conduct business as usual.”

Meanwhile, a spokesperson at Warwick Academy said the school made the decision “to start a three day transition to remote learning” as of today.

“Staff only are in Wednesday and Thursday to complete their preparedness for the shift.

“Attendance and all classes officially commence remotely on Friday 20th March until further notice.”

Bermuda High School (BHS) for Girls shut down on Monday.

“Provisions have been put in place to allow for learning to continue at home,” a BHS spokesperson said.

“Primary students will be sent home with work packs and their resources will be shared on our virtual learning platform and parent portal, Firefly. Secondary students will continue with their e-learning through Google Classrooms and Managebac.”
