Poa also reiterated DepEd’s appeal to parents and guardians to not wait until the last day of enrollment.
“Yung mga hindi pa nag-e-enroll, kung pwede, mag-enroll na para mabigyan yung DepEd ng paghahanda,” Poa said in a Manila Bulletin interview.
“Kung hindi natin alam kung ilan ang papasok sa isang classroom, hindi rin tayo makakapaghanda so sana mai-enroll na,” he added.
