LEARNERS become more focused in the class discussion.

A total of 469 out of 1,864 learners from Kinder to Grade 6 of Pleasant Hills Elementary School (PHES) are attending the limited face-to-face classes amid the public health situation brought by the pandemic.

According to the school principal Mrs. Lucia M. Llego, the school reopening gave hope to the education system in an effort to fill in the losses during the two years of distance learning modality.

“I wish to thank the teachers, non-teaching personnel and other stakeholders for giving their full support in the implementation of the limited face-to-face classes,” Mrs. Llego said.

SELECT learners of Pleasant Hills Elementary School (PHES) attend the regular Monday Program during the school’s first day of limited face-to-face classes implementation.

The limited F2F classes were piloted in Key Stage 1 (Kinder to Grade 3 levels) with 312 learners whose parents and home learning partners signified their willingness to send their children to school followed by Key Stage 2 (Grade 4 to 6 levels) with 157 learners.

The school reopening for face-to-face interactions was carefully planned in stages to ensure the safety of learners, teachers, and school staff, particularly after physical separation.

Planning and execution of school health protocols during this pandemic have been carefully carried out in the school with the guidance of the administration.

The checklists and procedures are structured around protective measures related to hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette; physical distancing; use of masks in schools; environmental cleaning and ventilation; and respecting procedures for isolation of all people with symptoms.

˝Masasabi ko po na ang face-to-face classes ay tinutulungan ang mga estudyante na maging mas produktibo sa paggawa at pakikilahok sa mga aktibidad sa paaralan at nagkakaroon ng pagkakataon ang mga estudyante na mas makilala pa nang lubusan ang kanilang mga kamag aral at mga guro,” said Ma. Yesenia Danica B. Constante, SPG President and Grade 6 learner.

Meanwhile, the school principal reminded the teachers, non-teaching personnel and learners on the importance of following the implementing rules and regulations set by health experts to attain the desired goals of the implementation.
