Last Monday, DepEd Assistant Secretary for Field Operations Malcolm Garma released the preliminary list of 30 schools that will offer limited physical education lessons beginning November 15.

Briones underlined that attendance at face-to-face classes is not required. Before courses may begin, parents or guardians must provide their permission.

“Walang sapilitan. Kung may mag-back out, karapatan nila ‘yan. Ang aming obligasyon ay i-explain all possible precautions,”

(Participation is not mandatory. If they decide to back out, that is their right. Our obligation is to explain all possible precautions)

she said.

The DepEd director also stated that her department will choose 20 private schools that will provide face-to-face instruction. She stated that one overseas school has submitted the prerequisites for a limited number of in-person classes to be evaluated.

According to the Education Department, 93.2 percent of the workers at these 90 specified schools have been immunized against Covid-19.

To guarantee that everything is ready for in-person classes, training and orientation events for parents, local government entities, learners, school personnel, and other partners are ongoing.

“Hindi pwedeng magbukas na lang tayo at darating ang mga bata. Kailangang ma-orient, lalo na ang parents, sa papel nila dahil may mga instances na may iilang mga bata na nakakuha ng Covid, pero hindi naman galing sa school dahil hindi naman tayo nagpe-face-to-face ngayon kundi sa bahay, sa transportation, at sa ibang sources. Kaya kailangan lahat mag-cooperate,”

(We cannot just open the schools and let the students in. We need to orient, especially the parents, on their role as some children contracted Covid-19 but not in schools. They got it from their household, in transportation, or other sources, which is why everybody needs to cooperate on this endeavor)

Briones said.
