The Department of Education Services (DES) advises that the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) has undertaken investigations of an incident involving three Clifton Hunter High School students, who fell ill after allegedly ingesting food that contained an unknown substance. Of those involved, two individuals have already been identified and excluded from the school until the investigation is completed.
Acting Director of DES, Mrs. Tammy Hopkins is reassuring the public that the safety and wellness of students in the Government schools are priorities. “We are committed to supporting the affected students and ensuring their physical and emotional well-being. Immediate and necessary actions have been taken to address this matter in line with the National School Discipline and School Behaviour Policy,” Mrs. Hopkins added.
