Marikina suspends face-to-face classes during transport strike
The city government of Marikina, in coordination with the Department of Education (DepEd) Marikina, has suspended all face-to-face or in-person classes in public and private schools in the city due to an impending transport strike.
The suspension of face-to-face classes is intended to ensure the safety and security of students, teachers, and school personnel, as well as to minimize the disruption of learning activities during the transport strike. Instead, students are encouraged to continue their studies and complete their assigned modules at home.
For those who have access to the internet, online classes can be an alternative mode of learning. However, the city government acknowledges that not all students have the necessary resources to participate in online classes. Thus, the government is committed to providing support to ensure that no student is left behind in their education.
The city government and DepEd Marikina have urged parents and guardians to closely monitor their children's academic progress and to communicate with their teachers for any concerns or questions about their education. They also emphasized the importance of following health protocols and maintaining physical distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
