    How many kids will stay in the classroom for how many hours?

    According to DepEd, these identified schools were carefully assessed and tagged by the DOH Epidemiology Bureau as minimal or “low risk based on the Alert Levels of provinces, highly urbanized cities (HUC), independent component cities (ICC) and risk category of municipality and city.”

    The allowable number of learners in every classroom are:

    • Kindergarten: maximum of 12 learners (3 hours stay in school)
    • Grades 1 to 3: maximum of 16 learners (4.5 hours stay in school)
    • Grades 4 to 6: maximum of 20 learners (4.5 hours stay in school)
    • Grades 7 to 10: maximum 20 learners (4.5 hours stay in school)
    • Senior High School: maximum of 20 learners in a classroom (4.5 hours stay in school)
    • Maximum of 12 learners in TVL workshop and science laboratory

    Guided by the DepEd-DOH Joint Memorandum Circular (read the guidelines here), the agencies will also administer site inspection to assure the availability of school implementation and contingency plan, hygiene and sanitation materials, and standard classrooms among others.

    The DepEd will also evaluate the pilot run of face-to-face classes and report its analysis to Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte by February 2022. If the pilot run succeeds, face-to-face classes may be extended to other areas starting March 7, 2022.
