Cleaning: 90% of the main axes are now cleared. The work continues during the weekend in the ancillary axes to finish the work of pickup.
It is important that the population separates household waste from bulky waste. This sorting will greatly help the cleaning crews.

The community prepares the schools for the school year, and it is only when the schools are ready, the logistics of reception of pupils in place by the Rectorate, that the re-entry can take place. It will take some day to finalize this work.
The President has made the beginning of the school year a priority, with a focus on the examination classes. It is working with the rectorate to speed up the process. The rector will communicate on the date of re-entry.
The Community and the National Service announce the cancellation of the DC Day of Defense and Citizenship scheduled on Wednesday 27 September at the MJC Sandy Ground. The youth will be convened at a later date.
