MANILA –Opening of classes for school year 2020-2021 has been moved to October 5, 2020 as approved by President Rodrigo Duterte, the Department of Education (DepEd) announced Friday.

“As per the memorandum of the President, he has given approval to the recommendation of DepEd which I repeat, we submitted last August 8. Thus, we will now implement such a decision to defer school opening to October 5,” DepEd Secretary Leonor Briones said in an online briefing.

Originally, the opening of classes was scheduled for August 24.

A letter from Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea to Sec. Briones was also forwarded to DepEd shortly after President Duterte approved the Oct. 5 opening proposal.
