Friends and Families, We have heard that everyone is ok and safe on Cape Eleuthera! Since this morning, Irene has moved on and the winds are steadily dropping. The Island School campus has faired well with no broken windows and no significant damages. The plants on campus have been denuded so we are going to look a little bare for a couple of months.

Everyone is accounted for and happy to breathe some fresh air and stretch their legs after a long night inside.  We have plenty of water and are getting our generators up and running.  We expect to have spotty communications for the next couple of days as the community recovers and gets back to life as normal.

We want to send out a big thank you to John "Giant" Norris Carey forbuilding some of the toughest buildings in the world.
