IN PREPARATION for the conduct of limited face-to-face classes, the city government of Pasay distributed ultraviolet lights and medical kits to all public schools in the city.

Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano said the move aims to provide additional health and safety measures in rooms and other school facilities.

She added that they want to ensure the protection of learners and teachers and non-teaching personnel against Covid19.

The city government plans to hold in-person classes at the P. Zamora Elementary School once the government allows schools to reopen in the National Capital Region.

Earlier, Department of Education Planning Service Director Roger Masapol said there is a big chance of conducting F2F classes in NCR especially with the continuing decline of Covid19 cases.

The DepEd said that 97 schools located in areas with low Covid risk started face-to-face classes in Monday, November 15.

Twenty private schools will participate in the pilot run on November 22.

DepEd said about 5,245 learners from Kinder up to Grade 3 went back to school this week.
