FOR the first time since the coronavirus pandemic hit in March 2020, the Antique National School held face-to-face classes on Monday, December 6.

Principal Roger Jomolo said that 88 Senior High School students taking up Technical-Vocational Livelihood track specializing in bread and pastry, cookery and Electrical Installation and Maintenance participated in the pilot limited physical classes.

“We have 88 students who have been vaccinated and who are now attending face-to-face classes. 8 teachers handling the classes are also fully inoculated against Covid19,” Jomolo said.

He noted that 412 learners will continue to attend modular classes as they wait to be included in the expansion phase.

Around 100 public schools resumed onsite learning on November 15.

On Monday, 171 additional schools nationwide, including 28 in Metro Manila, started physical classes.

Kindergarten students will spend three hours in the classroom daily, while those in higher levels will stay in school for at least four hours.

Morning and afternoon shifts are also in place to accommodate more learners while ensuring their safety.
