Students will still have nearly four months of staying at home as classes for the next school year will officially start on August 24 and end on April 30, 2021, Education Secretary Leonor Briones announced today. However, she added that classes may be conducted physically or virtually depending on the state of the coronavirus pandemic by then.

Accordingly, the date was decided based on consultations and Secretary Briones had already reported this to the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) on Emerging Infectious Diseases.

Meanwhile, teachers as well as school personnel are expected to report for work either physically or virtually during the enrollment period from June 1 to 30.
