St. John Gifft Hill School Set to Open on Monday Sep 25

St John

Hurricane Irma and Maria has delayed school in the Caribbean region and Florida. However, Gifft Hill School, on the island of St John has announced that  it plans to begin the 2017-18 school year on Monday, Sept. 25.  This is possible, thanks to the efforts of faculty, staff, trustees and community volunteers.

Students in preschool through 12th grade are welcome to report to school at the Lower Campus. Students will receive instruction from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Gifft Hill’s dynamic programming will continue, and the school will have sufficient power via generator. Students should bring a packed lunch that does not require reheating, along with a water bottle. Repairs will continue at both campuses.

Faculty are looking forward to welcoming students to school. The teachers have worked tirelessly to prepare the school for students. Their commitment to academic rigor through experiential learning and compassionate community in our enriched environment remains.
