Has anyone heard the status of the students at St. Matthew's ? Were they able to get flights out of the country and if so how would you go about finding who is on those flights ? Have family there and have not heard from them....

Some medical students had arrived in US and others are still in Belize air port.
I managed to confirm a seat for my daughter on continental for tomorrow. They are on their own since they arrived at the airport.
When they arrived at Belize from San Pedro
my daughter was put in one room with 9 others. I am not sure where they are going to find shelter tonight. Curfew is on and they cannot spend the night in the air port.

i would say more than half of the smu students got out of belize city on wednesday.
the rest should get out thursday. i am an smu student that got out wednesday. the scene at the airport was chaotic. we were led to believe that the school would help us to get out of belize city. totally untrue. i saw no smu faculty at the airport. we all got out however we could. as for classes starting on monday, well i doubt it. nothing is confirmed in orlando right now. most of the students are at their homes and waiting for word on school. as for saying the smu faculty did all they could for the students, i'm not buying it.
