THE MARINDUQUE State College has declared an academic break to allow students, faculty and staff to recover from the impact of Typhoons Quinta and Rolly, its Vice President for Academic Affairs said.

The break will run from November 4 to 8, 2020.

All types of activities will be suspended during the break.

“The break is for all the faculty members, staff, and students of the 13 schools under the department of Academic Affairs including the Laboratory High School,” the school said on Facebook.

“The break focuses on everyone affected by the typhoon to restore their resources and tend to their emotional, mental, and physical state. Moreover, faculty members are advised to refrain from giving any learning activities to the students in consideration of their connectivity and power supply,” it added.

“We hope that this break will relieve everyone’s stress and revitalize everyone’s spirit to bounce back after this tremendous calamity,” the school said.

Students and faculty members were also encouraged to help their local government units carry out donation drives for typhoon victims.
