What’s happening at Adelaide Primary is a part of a much bigger picture.

The numbers there nearly mirror what education officials say is happening across the board in the public school system.

Just over a week ago Education Director Marcellus Taylor revealed that 30 percent of all online students are not attending online classes.

Taylor said a part of the problem is the lack of devices and internet connection.

Taylor said the Department of Education has tried its best to improve the availability of devices.

Black says lack of internet is a major issue for students who live in surrounding communities.

While the internet is an issue she says the school is doing what it must to get devices to kids.

According to Principal Black there are currently 119 students registered at the school.

She says they plan on adding more kids once the pre-school unit is officially opened after covid cases drop and the Ministry 0f Education deems online learning is safe.

She says once that happens, they will be ready to hit the ground running.
