Nilinaw ng Department of Education na half-day lamang ang itatagal ng mga estudyante sa paaralan kung sakaling matuloy ang iminungkahing implementasyon ng face-to-face classes sa mga lugar na naitalang COVID-19 low-risk areas.

Matatandaang noong Enero naunang itinakda ang implementasyon nito subalit nasuspinde ito dahil sa paglitaw ng UK variant ng COVID-19 sa bansa.

“The class schedules will vary between schools but the general rule will be that the face-to-face classes will be for a maximum of half-day only,” paglilinaw ni DepEd Usec. Nepomuceno Malaluan.

Importante rin umano na sa kanilang bahay kumain ang estudyante sapagkat mataas ang posibilidad na mahawa at kumalat ang virus habang kumakain ang mga ito sa paaralan.

“So, the students will have to go home — if their schedule is in the morning, to have their lunch at home or those that are coming for an afternoon schedule should have eaten already their lunch at home,” paliwanag ni Usec. Malaluan.

Sa ginawang ulat ng DepEd sa Senate committee on Basic Education, naiulat na 50 mga paaralan sa bawat rehiyon ang papayagang makilahok sa gagawing pilot testing.

Kaugnay nito, idinetalye rin ng DepEd na isang klase lamang sa bawat grade level ang papayagan sa mga maliliit na paaralan, hanggang tatlong klase naman sa bawat grade level sa mga paaralang hindi gaano kalaki, at hanggang limang klase sa bawat grade level sa mga malalaking paaralan.

Bukod pa rito, hanggang 20 estudyante lamang ang papayagan sa bawat klase at maaari pang mabawasan depende sa laki ng silid-aralan.

“For smaller classroom sizes, 16 is recommended to maintain physical distancing,” ani Usec. Malaluan.

Sa kasalukuyan, hinihintay na lamang ng DepEd ang desisyon ng Pangulo tungkol rito at anumang oras ay handa umano silang ipatupad ito.
