(UPDATED, 2:00 AM of JANUARY 10, 2022)
Several schools in Metro Manila have announced class suspensions for next week due to the sudden rise in COVID-19 cases across the region.
The school administrations were apparently responding to the clamor from students and teachers alive for the implementation of a so-called academic ease, which includes extending deadlines and reducing work load as a response to the worsening pandemic and the recent onslaught of super typhoon “Odette” that affected large parts of Visayas and Mindanao.
So far, the administration of the following education institutions has announced suspension of classes for next week. The Filipino Scribe post will be updated as new information becomes available:
