DepEd schedules FIVE-DAY MID-YEAR BREAK for public schools

Based on the DepEd Order No. 034 Series 2022 or School Calendar and Activities for the School Year 2022-2023, the Department of Education (DepEd) will have a five-day school break (also known as semestral break or sem-break) starting February 6 until February 10 this year.

The five-day mid-year break shall be spent for the conduct of the Midyear Performance Review and Evaluation and the School-Based INSET. 

The first two days shall be spent in evaluating the school’s progress in the implementation of the educational programs, projects, and activities, as well as in reviewing the performance of teachers and the school staff to address concerns through cooperative effort.

The last three days shall be devoted to the conduct of the school-based INSET activities for the teachers’ continued professional development and the preparation of their Instructional Materials.

For students, this school break week will be the time for non-academic activities such as hobbies and interests, family bonding, and other activities to promote physical and socio-emotional well being.

Classes will resume on February 13 that marks the start of Academic Third Quarter.
