Taguig reminds students on health protocols
The city government of Taguig on Monday reminded all teachers and learners to strictly observe health protocols to prevent the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) as in-person classes for school year 2022-2023 officially started, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.
Mayor Lani Cayetano made this reminder as she personally visited Signal Village National High School and EM's Signal Village Elementary School to check on the conditions of public school teachers and students.
She was accompanied by Department of Education Taguig-Pateros Schools Division Superintendent Dr. Margarito Materum, School Governance, and Operations Division Chief Danny Espelico, and Councilor Marisse Balina-Eron.
Cayetano said face-to-face classes in Taguig remained orderly and peaceful and added that the local government is on top of the situation should any contingency arise.
"Naging maayos at matiwasay ang pagsalubong ng mga estudyante sa unang araw ng pasukan sa iba't ibang paaralan sa lungsod na binisita rin ng ilan nating lingkod-bayan. Ang kaayusan sa unang araw ng pasukan ay dahil na rin sa masusing paghahanda ng mga paaralan katulong na ang pamahalaang lungsod (Everything was orderly and peaceful during our opening in schools that was also visited by our local government officials. We can attribute this to the preparation and coordination work of the schools and the local government)," she added.
