TO PARENTS AND STUDENTS OF PREP ONE TO GRADE TWELVE: (PLEASE READ UNTIL THE END.)
For Prep One to Grade Ten, school year 2019-2020 will officially come to a close on May 15, 2020. The guidelines for promotion, reservation, enrollment, assessment of new students, and other important things are as follows:
1. For Prep One to Grade Ten, there will be no issuance of assignments or extension of classes, online or actual, beyond May 15, 2020.
2. The final grade for each subject will be the average of the grades from the first, second, and third grading periods.
*3. Because the COVID-19 pandemic has made this school year very different from our normal school years, we will not be computing for gold, silver, and bronze awards. Only students who have garnered the highest, second highest, and third highest general averages will be acknowledged for the purpose of scholarships and awards.
*4. Notices regarding grades, promotion, important dates, guidelines for reservation and enrollment procedures, etc., will be made available via email. In line with this, parents of Prep One to Grade Six students and high school students have been requested through an announcement on April 25, 2020, to register their email addresses with the school. Please understand that the availability of actual school cards, diplomas, and other documents will be dependent on government regulations regarding community quarantine. The school will make an announcement when these documents are ready for pick-up. In the meantime, we hope for your kind understanding and patience.
*5. Pending the release of the emails mentioned above, please be reminded of our student/parent-teacher etiquette guide which states that students and parents are not to contact teachers to ask for grades or class standing before the official release of the grades.
6. Online summer courses for English, Filipino, math will be available for Grades One to Ten. Guidelines for enrollment will also be in the email that will be sent to you.
*7. To safeguard everyone’s health, all mass gatherings such as moving-up ceremonies, commencement exercises, and closing ceremonies will be cancelled.
All of the above decisions were reached after careful deliberation, consideration, and consultation. We understand that while academic skills are important, physical, emotional, and mental health matter more. To parents who are worried that their children are behind in their lessons or skills development, we give the reassurance that the initial part of the succeeding school year (2020-2021) will be spent on helping your children catch up with all necessary competencies. Your children’s safety and well-being remain our top priority while we determine the best teaching and nurturing methods for their grade levels. We also recognize the major role that online learning will have to play in the future. The new normal might be a combination of actual and virtual classes. We hope to get your cooperation so that we can all get ready to deal with possible physical class disruptions in the future and to be able to switch smoothly between actual and online classes. Kindly accomplish a survey on your internet capabilities that we have sent to you. Please send in your responses on or before May 19, 2020.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a lot of uncertainties to the educational system, but one thing remains sure – our unwavering commitment to do our best for our students. The new normal is indeed a big challenge we are facing, but with our dedication and your support , we hope to triumph over all the difficulties ahead.
*NOTE: THESE ITEMS ALSO APPLY TO GRADES ELEVEN AND TWELVE.
