The local government of Pakil has supported the recommendation of officials to reopen the Saray Elementary School, as no positive cases were reported in Barangay Saray since the pandemic started last year.
AS Laguna province is placed under a slightly less-restrictive Alert Level 3 classification starting today (October 20), the local government of Pakil, Laguna said it is now preparing to resume limited 'face-to-face' classes at one of its elementary schools.
In a statement, Mayor Vince Soriano said the local government has coordinated with Department of Education (DepEd) District Supervisor Leny Corcolon and other officials in their request to reopen the Saray Elementary School.
The LGU has supported the recommendation of Corcolon and school principal Arnel Macabasco to reopen the school, as no positive cases were reported in Barangay Saray since the pandemic started last year.
Saray Elementary School, though is not listed as among the schools identified by DepEd as one of the venues of the pilot implementation of limited face-to-face classes, which will start on November 15.
“Ito po ay ating sinusuportahan dahil bukod po sa aking paniniwalang dapat nang maghanda ang mga LGUs sa muling pagbubukas ng mga paaralan, ang Barangay Saray po ay talagang ligtas naman sa pandemya dahil hanggang sa ngayon ay wala pa ritong nagiging aktibong kaso ng Covid-19,” Soriano said in his Facebook page.
As of October 18, Pakil has reported 740 confirmed and 72 active Covid-19 cases.
