KagES to hold classes at COVMS

Both schools to hold half-day sessions
Posted on Aug 30 2019


Kagman Elementary School will be holding classes at the Chacha Oceanview Middle School when the school year starts this Tuesday, Sept. 3 due to issues with KagES’ electrical systems.

Because of this arrangement COVMS will be having half-day sessions, said KES school principal Dr. Ignacia Demapan.

She said that KES staff noticed that the electricity from the transformer overloaded the school’s junction box, producing smoke. This has been hindering the elementary school since last Monday, and it forced them to move their orientations to COVMS.

Demapan said the Commonwealth Utilities Corp. already knows about this and is already fixing it, although there is no fixed timeframe on this.

“It may take up to one month or more until classes are held at the elementary school, as we are still working with CUC and a contractor to work on this,” she said.

KagES will be holding its classes at COVMS from 7:30am to 11:30am, and the middle school will hold its classes from 12:30pm to 4pm.
