The mayor of San Pedro may be a UDP - but he's gotten in trouble with the Ministry of Education after a bold declaration: Mayor Daniel Guerrero seems to have unilaterally declared Friday, September 11, 2015 a holiday for all schools on San Pedro. Well, the ministry says he did that despite a letter they sent to him on September 9th, denying his request to declare the ninth a non-school day.

A press release form the ministry says, quote, "The arbitrary decision at a municipal level…cannot be condoned. The determination of Public and Bank Holidays, or the declaration of non-school days, is not within the jurisdiction of municipal authorities." The release reminds school managements, parents, and students that the Ministry of Education is the sole authority to approve non-school days.

The ministry, quote, "condemns the ill advised and unauthorized decision of the Mayor."

I was lead to believe from my son that the High School was forced to do the parade on Thursday. There were some from the other schools, but not the full schools.

I would like to thank the Mayor for giving my son the day off to get over the parade. We went up to see the parade and we needed the day off after that as well, it was just to hot in the sun to watch never mind walking round San Pedro.

Once again thank you Mayor.
