DepEd: Schools to decide on graduation rites, moving-up ceremonies
Graduation rites slated for April 3 are already canceled, DepEd Undersecretary Annalyn Sevilla said as she reminded schools to consult parents on the matter.
The Department of Education said Friday it would leave the decision to hold graduation rites and moving-up ceremonies up to schools in light of the suspension of classes and activities due to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
“Puwede po nila itong i-reschedule, puwede din po na ‘di na nila ituloy pero ito po ay kailangan ikonsulta sa mga magulang,” she said in a press briefing.
(They can reschedule it. They can also cancel it but they have to consult the parents.)
Sevilla added that the schools should consult and cooperate with parents, with the Parents Teachers Association on this matter.
Classes and school activities in all levels across the country are suspended until April 14 and would resume on April 15 as the public is urged to stay home to control the spread of COVID-19.
In response to the month-long class suspension, DepEd transitioned to electronic learning with an online platform called “DEpEd Commons” to help students continue their lessons amid the Luzon-wide lockdown.
