Opening of Classes for SY 2009-2010

May 27, 2009

The opening of classes for SY 2009-2010 has been set for June 1, 2009. This is mostly for public elementary and high schools. For private schools, start of classes will be a week after, on June 8, 2009. This is despite the flu virus scare, the Department of Education (DepEd) has said in news reports. Secretary Jesli Lapuz said that according to the Department of Health, there is no reason to postpone the opening of classes as AH1N1 virus has not reached pandemic level yet. I just hope that they already have a concrete plan in dealing with a scenario that involves this virus, aside from the guidelines that they have made available to the schools. And for us parents, the opening of classes is the start of waking up very early to prepare the kids and packed lunches, and then to hurry to avoid being late to our own jobs. In other words, the fun is about to begin!

Here is my Ishi, trying on her new school uniform and is very excited to go to school already! She will be in Kinder class this year.
