Cayman Islands Press Statement on EEPS Incident on Thurs. 9 Nov

East End Primary School Update

On 9 November, the Ministry of Education and the Department of Education Services (DES) were notified that East End Primary School’s (EEPS) gate was locked and students and staff were unable to gain access. The Director of the DES, Ms. Lyneth Monteith and the Senior School Improvement Officer (SSIO), Mrs. Gloria Bell proceeded to East End Primary School and met with the parents. The parents stated their concerns over a Year 5 teacher being removed from the school on 17 October and requested a reinstatement. The teacher was removed from the school due to an investigation that commenced with the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), and we understand that the investigation is ongoing.

The parents also shared their dissatisfaction with the capability of the Assistant Teacher, currently in place to provide the instruction the students need.  Assistant teachers, who must hold an Associates Degree at a minimum, are allowed to provide teaching for periods of time, but the parents were not satisfied with this arrangement and want a trained teacher in the class.

The parents were reminded of the procedure for managing Child Protection allegations, which is as follows:

Once a disclosure has been made, a referral is made to the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), the allegation is reviewed by the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) team and a decision is made whether to proceed via an investigation by the Department of Children and Family Services or the Royal Cayman Islands Police Services, or it is reverted to DES for internal action.

If the decision is an investigation by DCFS or the , the case proceeds until its conclusion.  The concluding outcome is communicated to DES for any further action required.  The staff member is placed on required leave at this point.

When the referral is made to DCFS, DES takes the following actions:

  • The teacher is removed from the school with immediate effect.
  • The teacher is relocated to DES, if that is deemed appropriate.
  • The teacher provides indirect educational support by planning lessons, assessing work and liaising with the substitute staff member for the period that the teacher is temporarily relocated.  This is directed by the Principal of the school with support from the SSIO.  This extends to completing reports if necessary.

 

If the decision is for DES action, an internal investigation occurs as per the Public Service Management Law and disciplinary actions are taken as needed.

While efforts to find a supply teacher occurred, the Director of DES indicated the intention to place Mrs. Bell, the SSIO in the classroom, as an immediate solution in terms of a trained teacher rather than having an Assistant Teacher.  However, this suggestion was declined by the parents, and they elected to leave their children at home for the day.

The availability of supply teachers for both public and private schools is very limited and plans are being developed to address the shortfall of quality supply teachers available for Government schools.  Subsequent to the meeting today with the EEPS parents, the Director has obtained a substitute teacher which will begin tomorrow(November 10). The individual is at present planning with the EEPS teacher and will continue to liaise with the teacher for the duration of the process.

Cayman Islands: RCIPS FCU reminds public to beware of phishing emails purporting to be from local banks

From RCIPS

The RCIPS Financial Crimes Unit would like to warn the public of emails purporting to be from local banks which solicit banking account numbers and PIN numbers. Typically, once culprits obtain bank information through a phishing email, they then hack the email account of the victim, and send emails from that account with their PIN information to the banking institution, requesting a wire transfer.

“Banking institutions will never solicit such information from you over your email,” said Chief Inspector Richard Barrow. “No matter how legitimate the email may appear, if it is asking you to input your account number and PIN, it is definitely a scam.”

Any suspicious emails purportedly from a banking institution should never be responded to, and the bank should be contacted right away.

Two residents on island have reported unauthorized withdrawals on their accounts in substantial amounts. Both of these reports are currently under investigation by the Financial Crimes Unit.

Anyone with further information to share with the Financial Crimes Unit on this issue should contact 949-8797.

 

Cayman Islands DEH Temporarily reduces intake of scrap metals and derelict vehicles

The Department of Environmental Health (DEH) wishes to advise the public that the George Town landfill is temporarily operating at a reduced frequency for the acceptance of scrap metals and derelict vehicles.

The DEH urges residents to refrain from abandoning vehicles on private property, along the road way and in other public spaces during this time. The DEH is also asking members of the public not to bring in scrap metals until further notice.

“We have not completely stopped the collection of scrap metals and derelict vehicles but have reduced the quantities going to the landfill until we can safely stack the metals and prepare another area for the safe storage of the derelict vehicles,” said DEH Director Roydell Carter.

The DEH apologises to the public for any inconvenience caused by this temporary delay and will update members of the public as soon as it is able to resume complete collection of derelict vehicles/scrap metals.

For additional information, please contact DEH’s main office by telephone at 949-6696 or by email at dehcustomerservice@gov.ky.

Destructive 2017 Atlantic hurricane season may be over

From Augusta Free Press

AccuWeather reports while the official end of the Atlantic hurricane season is not until Nov. 30, the chance of a tropical storm developing and hitting the United States this month is very low.

August and September brought great devastation due to hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria striking heavily-populated areas. However, these storms struck when conditions were conducive for supporting tropical cyclones as hurricane season was at or approaching its climatological peak.

Ocean temperatures were like bath water and winds aloft were light during late August and September.

While hurricanes have formed and even struck the U.S. during November, the odds of such an occurrence are very low on average.

Emergence of mosquitoes expected in the Cayman Islands following heavy rains

The Mosquito Research and Control Unit (MRCU) is expecting a significant emergence of mosquitoes during the next few days due to the recent heavy rains.

The increased rainfall results in a higher number of mosquitoes hatching during this period, compared to dryer conditions.

The wet and stormy weather has also been hampering MRCU’s control efforts, as neither ground, nor aerial operations can be conducted in extreme wet or windy conditions.

As soon as weather conditions permit, MRCU will respond to the expected mosquito emergence.

 

Cayman Islands Police Offer Burglary Prevention Reminder

From RCIPS

Following reports of two burglaries overnight in the Rum Point Drive area, where culprits gained entry through unlocked doors, police are reminding members of the public to ensure their doors and windows are securely locked, especially in the evening.

“Securing points of entry is one of the most straightforward things that can be done to deter burglars,” said Inspector Courtney Myles of the Neighbourhood Policing Department. “In light of these two burglaries we will be stepping up our patrols in these areas and we ask the community to work with us and report any suspicious activity. We remain committed to ensuring the safety of all persons living in our community and their properties.”

Anyone who is interested in a crime prevention review of their property should contact their local police station for the neighbourhood police officer in their area.

If you have not received your PCCC form please feel free to drop by the PSPB office located on the 1st floor of the Government Administration Building to address this matter.

November events at Camana Bay

There’s always something happening…
For the full list of event details this month
and weekly rituals, click here.

November is an exciting month as it eases us into the holiday season with signature events like our Tree Lighting and the beginning of our weekly festivities, from Caribbean and Traditional Santa Photos to our weekly Christmas Moonlight & Movies series!

But first, we have a major milestone to celebrate: we’re 10! It’s time to party, and we are celebrating with a birthday party open to all. Come along for fireworks, fish fry and birthday cake under the stars.

November is also Ocean Conservation Month, and we are recognising this very important cause with themed Moonlight & Movies, a month-long photo exhibit in the Town Centre and themed Story Times in Books & Books, as well as a special premiere at Regal Cinemas of Guy Harvey’s latest documentary This is Their Ocean: Sea of Life.

Warm Regards,
The Camana Bay Marketing Team
