DoDEA has completed an operational assessment for all DoDEA schools on Fort Buchanan and U.S. Coast Guard Ramey Base. DoDEA Schools on Fort Buchanan will reopen on Monday, October 16. We have inspected our schools, and they are safe and ready to resume education. DoDEA School on USCG Air Station Borinquen (Ramey) is tentatively scheduled to reopen on Monday, October 23. We are continuing to focus all of our energies and efforts to obtaining resources to provide the necessary power and water services to resume school operations as soon as possible.
We know parents are as concerned about their children's education and emotional well-being as are we. It is our plan and desire to resume normal operations as soon as possible so we can welcome all our students back.
Our entire community has experienced significant turmoil as a result of Hurricane Maria. As with any challenge, the members of our community come together and work as a team to get things done, and this is no exception. We are grateful to those DoDEA and installation community members who are working tirelessly here in Puerto Rico; in our Mid-Atlantic District Office, our DoDEA Americas Region Office; and at DoDEA Headquarters to ensure our school communities are safe and supported.
Should you have any questions or need additional information regarding DoDEA school operations in Puerto Rico, please contact the following individuals:
Mr. Charlie Council
DoDEA Mid-Atlantic District Chief of Staff
Mr. Steve Hovanic
DoDEA Americas Chief of Staff
We will provide updated information on the status of Ramey School as we have it.

Stay safe and know that our thoughts are with all of you during this difficult time.
