QC is prepared for the start of courses on Monday.
The 158 public elementary and high schools in Quezon City (QC) are prepared for the start of courses on Monday, as is the local administration.
According to information from the Schools Division Office (SDO), as of August 20, there were 440,821 students enrolled in the city’s public schools.
“Patapos pa lang ang klase noong nakaraang school year, naghahanda na tayo para sa darating na pasukan. Tinitiyak natin na may sapat na personnel at kagamitan ang ating mga paaralan para masiguro ang kaligtasan ng ating mga estudyante at mga guro sa pagbabalik-eskwela (Classes were about to end last school year but we already started preparing for the next opening of classes. We made sure the schools have enough personnel and supplies to ensure the safety of students and teachers as they go back to classes),” Mayor Joy Belmonte said.
Only 81 schools will conduct five days of in-person instruction, while the remaining 77 will first use blended learning, according to the SDO. According to Department of Education Order No. 34, series of 2022, blended learning schools have until Nov. 2 to switch to in-person instruction.
With the assistance of many education stakeholders, Brigada Eskwela was also carried out to guarantee that classrooms and school facilities were ready. On Monday, all school administrators are present in the classrooms.
In order to reassure parents that their children would receive tablets and school supplies, the Division of City Schools-Quezon City had previously held a number of meetings with school administrators, monitored the operation of simulation classes, and conducted parents’ orientation at each individual school.
Additionally, the city’s Law and Order Cluster will be present at each school to guarantee strict adherence to the minimum health and safety protocols in their facilities as well as the orderly queueing and waiting of parents and guardians.
A total of 560 traffic enforcers will also be deployed by the Task Force for Transport and Traffic Management (TFTTM) and placed in schools along key thoroughfares and at crucial crossroads to manage traffic. Additionally, they will guarantee that students who use public transit receive a 20 percent discount.
The Department of Public Order and Safety, on the other hand, is sending representatives to schools to urge administrators to enforce health regulations and the ban on the sale and distribution of sugary foods in compliance with City Ordinance SP-2579, S-2017.
In case of infection in schools, the city is also preparing Covid-19 home care kits for pupils.
Through the PinasLakas program of the Department of Health, certain schools have established vaccination centers to make immunization accessible to children and their parents.
