Several of our staff have been having a very difficult time with illnesses recently. Our grade 5 teacher, Elandir (second from left) has been hospitalized for over a month with an infection after a gall bladder operation. She remains in a serious condition. Marcia, our grade 6 teacher has swollen joints as a result of Chikungunya, a nasty mosquito borne illness. Lisiane and Oseias, have also been sick with different virus’ which are so prevalent in the rainy season. Please keep them all in your prayers.
