DepEd: Christmas break in public schools from 18 December 2023 to 2 January 2024

Students in public elementary and high schools all over the country will have a two-week Christmas vacation beginning 16 December 2023, Saturday.

The school break will go on until January 2, with classes set to resume the following day, Tuesday. This is stipulated in the Department of Education’s (DepEd) school calendar for academic year 2023-2024 released by Vice President and concurrent Education Secretary Sara Duterte-Carpio last August.

It must be pointed out that private schools may begin their respective Christmas breaks earlier or later than December 16. The education department had earlier emphasized at the beginning of the current academic term that they can deviate from the official calendar as long as they meet the minimum of 200 school days required throughout the school year.
