There’s no stopping school.
The Department of Education (DepEd) has recently announced that opening of classes for School Year 2020-2021 has been set on August 24, 2020.
Last March 2020, classes were suspended and early ended due to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
“Ang napili nating school opening date ay August 24,” – Leonor Briones, Education Secretary
The school opening date was selected based on consultations with various stakeholders and on a survey involving 700,000 respondents.
Physical or virtual? This is the most common question now but unlike the starting date of classes which is fixed, the physical or virtual arrangement highly depends on the situation and areas.
