Human Services to Close Head Start and Senior Recreational Centers Early on Friday

V.I. Department of Human Services

The Virgin Islands Department of Human Services (VIDHS) Head Start Program will dismiss students early, territory-wide, at 1 p.m., Friday, in anticipation of Tropical Storm Fiona. DHS is asking parents to please be at the campuses on time to pick up students for early dismissal.

In addition, all DHS Senior Recreational Centers will be closed on Friday, Sept. 16. The Richmond Senior Center on St. Croix, the Strive Senior Center on St. Thomas and the Adrian Senior Center on St. John will be closed ahead of the storm’s landfall. Meals on Wheels, however, will continue to serve the public as scheduled.
