The Department of Education clarifies that private schools are included in the scheduled class suspension this coming May 2-13, 2022, to give way for the activities related to Local and National Elections 2022.
This is according to the DepEd Order No. 29 series of 2021. According to Camarines Norte Schools Division Superintendent Dr. Nympha Guemo, prior to the release of school calendar for this academic year, DepEd has already anticipated the upcoming 2022 elections that is why there are only 14 days of school days for the month of May.
The class suspension aims to commit the days for the election-related activities of the teachers and other DepEd officials.
However, Guemo added that teachers who don’t have election-related duties are still required to report in their respective schools.
No make-up classes will be done for the class suspension because it is included in school calendar.
