29 schools back out from pilot run of face-to-face classes

There are 29 schools backed out from the pilot run of face-to-face classes on November 15 as their respective local government units and concerned parents refused to take part.

Department of Education (DepEd) Director Malcolm Garma said that only 30 schools out of the 59 schools would take part in the face-to-face classes.

“Doon sa 59 na naunang listahan, 30 rito ang magsisimula ng pilot face-to-face sa November 15,” explained Garma.

Garma said some of the schools pulled out due to the increasing trend of COVID-19 cases in their areas.

DepEd regional offices nominated a total of 638 schools for the pilot run of face-to-face classes

The Department of Health‘s Epidemiology Bureau assessed these hundreds of schools and approved only 59 schools.

These schools were located in the Bicol, Western Visayas, Central Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, Northern Mindanao, and Soccsksargen Regions.

Garma said the DepEd still aimed to have 100 public schools and 20 private schools participate in the pilot of face-to-face classes.

  1. As a guardian I will not allow my grandson to go attend this face to face class in school! Both the students and teachers are at risk if this will be implemented. Bakit ba ngmamadali ang DEPED? At the height of the covid19, face to face classes should be put on hold. Huwag na ipilit. This is for everybody’s safety

  2. Me too! I disagree.I will not sacrifies my children
    Having modular ànd online class is enough. Vaccination is badly needed. Safety first … Pupils and Teachers are at risk so kahit mapili pa ang school namin having face to face di ako papayag.

    1. yes lahat ng magulang i tinitingnan ang kaligtasan mg mga anak but if will try to figure out the train of our public areas, there are some parents bringing there child in public places, like mall, church, and maybe plaza. so do we think it is. or we are not getting to the big picture on how to come up and at the same time protect our children even if we will go on face to face.
