Principal of the Queen's School Jennifer Williams has denied a report carried in the Jamaica Observer yesterday that her school was among several Corporate Area institutions that were closed early Monday, as result of a three-day sick-out by teachers.

The article said students from several schools, including Queen's, were seen returning home early following the sick-out by teachers.

However, Principal Williams contended that 61 of 81 teachers on staff at the school had turned up for duty Monday and classes were held up until the close of the school day. She further stated that 50 teachers reported today and school was in full session.

Teachers started a sick-out Monday to protest against Government's wage offer of a 16 per cent increase over a four-year period.
