To protect the physical and mental well being of learners and school personnel, the Department of Education (DepEd) announced on Friday the suspension of classes in public schools in the National Capital Region (NCR) on January 15, and January 17 until January 22, 2022 amid rising Covid-19 cases.

DepEd-NCR Regional Director Wilfredo Cabral issued Memorandum No. 017 s. 2022 dated January 14, 2022, which states that purely asynchronous distance learning modalities will resume on January 24 to 29, 2022.

For the duration of the suspension of classes, it is expected that physical reporting of teachers “will be not required by the school heads.”

Meanwhile, the mid-year break scheduled on January 31 to February 5 shall be utilized by the learners to comply with backlogs in learning outputs, while teachers are expected to attend to their usual activities including in-service trainings and other learning related undertakings.

“The Quarter 2 examinations shall be conducted on February 7 to 8, 2022,” the memorandum added.

The submission of learning outputs by the students is scheduled on February 7 to 12, using online platforms and other mechanisms, sans in-person contact/interface.

The DepEd-NCR said that the lost contact days shall be compensated by mechanisms such as independent study, remediation, enhancement activities and other related teaching-learning interactions. The school heads, on the other hand, are instructed to design schemes/strategies in order to operationalize these mechanisms.

“It is highly encouraged that the teachers and learners to just stay at home to avoid the contamination of the virus,” the memorandum stated.

For private schools, the DepEd said, in consultation with their respective parents’ associations, may exercise their own discretion relative to the suspension of classes and K to 12 learning activities when Covid-19 risks in their respective areas are high.

Marikina

Marikina City mayor Marcelino Teodoro has declared an “Academic Health Break” starting January 17 to 29 amid the increasing number of virus infections.

Teodoro said that the health break is provided under Section 16 of the General Welfare Clause of the Local Government Code, stressing that many learners, teachers, and their relatives may have contracted the virus.

The health break for both synchronous and asynchronous classes will be implemented in both private and public schools.

Teodoro added that no assignments or homework would be given to students during the duration of the academic health break.

Pasay

All online and onsite/physical classes in both public and private schools in Pasay City are also suspended.

In an executive order dated January 14, Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano noted that a health break will afford students, teaching and non-teaching personnel the time to “physically and mentally recharge, recuperate or to recover for those currently infected by Covid-19 disease.”

Calixto-Rubiano said that the health break would be implemented from January 15 to 22, to afford students, teachers, and school personnel “ample” time in determining the “much needed retooling of minimum public health protocols to protect themselves from the virus.” 30
