Alangilan opens first day of face-to-face classes


For the first time after classes were abruptly halted due to corona disease in March 2020, in-person classes resume today, December 6, in Alangilan National High School.

But classes were limited to just senior high school students as part of the pilot run of the limited face-to-face classes.

Gracing the opening of the classes was Bacolod City Emergency Operations Center executive Em Ang, together with Department of Education Superintendent Gladys Amylaine Dechavez Sales, DepEd Regional Quality Assurance & Accountability Div. Head Donato Delgado, Principal Veneranda Ortono Ortoño, DepEd Dist III PSDS Dr. Annie Nualda Esteron.

The once crowded classroom has now only 20 students, with individual chairs at 2 meters apart. Only students who are fully vaccinated are allowed to attend the face-to-face classes.

A thorough disinfection will be done every after dismissal to ensure the facility is COVID-free. An isolation area has also been in placed in the event a student or a faculty would exhibit COVID-like symptoms.

The school was selected by DepEd to take part in the pilot run of limited face-to-face classes as Barangay Alangilan is deemed low-risk for COVID-19 and 100% of the school’s faculty is fully-vaccinated, said Ang.

Also present during the flag ceremony this morning are SP Committee of Health Chairman Councilor Atty. Renecito S. Novero, DRRMO Head Dr. Anna Maria Laarni Pornan and Executive Asst. Moises de la Cruz.
