  • Decisions to Close School for Storms

    10.17.14

    Dear Antilles Parents,
    During periods when tropical storms or hurricanes (or other dangerous weather) threaten St. Thomas and/or St. John, I will make the decision about school closure as far in advance as possible to provide all our families maximum time to plan for child care and provide for safety. I will try to ensure the decision is made while all the traditional communication channels on island are still operational: email to all our parents, radio channel announcements (AM 1000), posting message on the school phone system, and through the VI Alert system. Once a decision has been made in advance of a particular school day, I will not change that decision since this would cause chaos among families who have already made arrangements based on the earlier decision to cancel school.

    Also, we realize that some of our families live on terrain that can be dangerous when wet, slippery and threatened by weather. We fully understand that you might choose to have your child(ren) remain at home if the conditions pose a danger. Of course, this type of absence is “excused” and the school will work to ensure no child is penalized for his/her parents choosing the safe option.

    I apologize if you did not “get the word” about our closure during Tropical Storm Gonzalo; please ensure the school office has your email contact information (and let us know if/when you change email addresses) so that we can ensure you receive a message. Thanks for all your hard work to get the students back into the routine of school after this week’s disruptions.

    For The Hurricanes,
    Mike
    Michael Hughes, Ph. D.
    Head of School

    In the Antilles Lower School, we utilize the Character Counts program to develop ethical core values and behaviors in our students. The Six Pillars of Character include: respect, citizenship, fairness, caring, responsibility and trustworthiness. This month, our students focused on the pillar of respect, which culminated with a presentation by the 3rd graders in both the Friday Morning Meeting in the Lower School and the Sing-A-Long in the ELC. Students wore yellow to show they were “radiating respect.” Click Read More to view more photos.

    Every year, the Head of School invites donors to the school to thank them for their support. This year's Headmaster's Reception was held last Saturday evening at Paradise Point. Dr. Hughes' guests enjoyed a champagne welcome while riding the tram up to the mountain top, the magnificent view from the summit, hors d'oeurves catered by Paradise Point, and each others' company. It was a fun-filled evening and a nice way to say "THANK YOU!" to some of the most generous donors to Antilles School. CLICK to download the Annual Report. PHOTOS
