ALL schools in the country will be closed for at least two days from today.

In a statement issued last night, Government said the closure was a precautionary measure because of the tropical cyclone alert in force for most areas of the country.

Schools will be made available as evacuation centres to provide shelter to those affected by severe weather and the Education Ministry and the disaster officials will continue to monitor the situation and provide regular updates as to when schools can be safely reopened for students and teachers, the statement said.
