May 31 Due to the rainy, stormy weather in the morning, absenteeism was at 80 to 95 percent in the basic level schools. (Basic level is up to and including middle school.) The primary students are required to be at school by 7am, but at "Andrés Quintana Roo" primary, only five students out of 362 had arrived at that time, according to director, María Elizabeth Tun. However this is expected to improve on Friday.
School absenteeism was higher in the preschool and primary schools, than at the high school and middle school. Many students who travel to Cancun for their higher education had no major problems, because they are out before 6am when taxis are less in demand.
There was also absenteeism in the workplaces, to a lesser degree, and taxis were not readily available before 7am to transport employees to work. Tourism activity was also reduced.
