DepEd suspends Calabarzon classes for two weeks
The Department of Education Calabarzon has suspended classes in all grade levels in the region from Jan. 17 to Jan. 29 amid the surge of COVID-19 cases, according to a report by GMA News.
Signed on Thursday, Regional Memorandum No. 32, s. 2022 suspends all other school activities, whether physical or virtual, involving school-based personnel, students, and parents.
“DepEd CALABARZON announces the suspension of classes in all grade levels on January 17 - 29, 2022,” the memorandum read.
DepEd Calabarzon said the midyear break on January 31 to February 5 will be maintained despite the suspensions of classes.
On Wednesday, DepEd urged regional and schools division offices to exercise discretion in suspending classes and other teaching-related activities this January amid the surge of COVID-19 cases.
The DepEd cited the alarming surge in COVID-19 cases and the well-being of teachers and students.
Meanwhile, DepEd said private schools, in consultation with parents’ associations, may also impose suspension of classes and K to 12 learning activities due to high COVID-19 risk.
