The Education Ministry has circulated emails and calls to all nine hundred school principals and their management.
Minister Dr Mahendra Reddy says this is to secure school premises to avoid loss and damage.
“Secure school premises that includes staff quarters as well and move movable items, desks and chairs to higher ground so we don’t lose them in case of flooding and we’re urging heads to keep close tabs in regards to the movement of cyclone and appropriate action.”
Dr Reddy says they will later announce the names of schools that will be used as evacuation centres however the nation has been assured that schools will be open to all should the need arise.
