Alaminos school starts face-to-face classes

By November 22, 2021Inside News

AMID the controversy that marked the first day of the face-to-face classes in Alaminos City, pupils of the lone school in Pangasinan were closely guided by protocols set by the Department of Education for the resumption of physical classes in the country.

The Longos Elementary School in Barangay Pangapisan, Alaminos City was the only school in the province given the green light by the Inter-Agency Task Force as recommended by DepEd to hold physical classes for Kinder, Grades 1, 2 and 3 levels.

On the first day, Monday, the pupils were assembled at the school grounds before they were led to the hand washing area then walked through the triage for temperature check and tapping of IDs in the digital logbook for their attendance, before they were ushered to their classrooms.

“The 80 pupils were divided into two batches. The first batch of 40 pupils are physically present this a week while the other 40 undergo modular learning classes. After a week, following an alternating system, the second  group will be in school while the first do its modular learning, and so on,” said Principal Fremilyn Rabago in a radio interview.

There are four rooms dedicated to the face-to-face interaction and classes will last for only 4.5 hours from Monday to Friday.

Inside the classrooms, plastic barriers are in-place and names of pupils are posted on every chair, Rabago added.

Barangay Pangapisan has zero cases of the corona virus disease and all six school personnel are fully-vaccinated.

Longos Elementary School is one of only 10 schools in Region 1 and 100 schools in the country to be part of the pilot testing for the holding limited face-to-face classes. (PIA Pangasinan/VHS)
