Department of Education Secretary Leonor Briones confirmed that the opening of classes will be moved to 5 October, 2020.

The Office of the President, through Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea, informed Briones that President Duterte respected her recommendation “in response to the implications of imposition of Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) in Metro Manila and in the provinces of Cavite, Bulacan, Laguna and Rizal”.

The school opening will be moved to October, and the education department “will use this time to make the necessary adjustments and ensure that all preparations have been made for the successful opening of classes for School Year 2020-2021”.

The deferment, Briones said, will be an opportunity to “provide relief to the logistical limitations faced by the areas placed under MECQ and to fill in the remaining gaps of the school opening that we are currently addressing”.

Areas outside MECQ meanwhile have been directed to continue their orientations, dry runs, and delivery of learning resources so that we will be ready for the opening of classes on October 5.
