Classes will be canceled by the Department of Education in the National Capital Region (DepEd-NCR) from January 15 to 22.

Due to an increase in coronavirus infections in the region, the Department of Education (DepEd) – National Capital Region (NCR) on Friday halted classes for public schools from January 15 to 22.

The department stated in Regional Memorandum No. 017 s. 2022 that the suspension of classes was done to relieve the health burden imposed by the increase in Covid-29 cases on school workers and students’ physical and mental well-being.

If the Covid-19 danger in their area is high, private schools may halt courses at their discretion after consulting with parents’ associations.

Classes in the region will resume from January 24 to 29, but “only for asynchronous distant learning modalities,” according to the statement.

Learners are expected to complete their learning output backlogs during the mid-year break, which runs from January 31 to February.

Meanwhile, teachers are expected to participate in their regular activities, such as in-service training and learning-related projects.

Learners must submit their learning outcomes via online platforms between February 7 and 12.

Exams for the second quarter will be held on February 7 and 8.

The DepEd stated that “the missing contact days shall be compensated by mechanisms such as independent study, remediation, enhancement activities, and other associated teaching-learning interactions.”

DepEd Undersecretary Diosdado San Antonio stated on Wednesday that the department cannot proclaim a national academic hiatus because the Covid-19 scenario is different in every place.

He advised regional and school division offices, on the other hand, to exercise caution in stopping classes and other teaching-related activities due to the spread of illnesses.
