The Municipal School Board of Sagada and the Parents-Teachers Associations (PTA) are asking for the resumption of face-to-face classes citing poor cellular and Internet connectivity and the difficulty of parents teaching their children.
Mayor James Pooten said the residents are requesting that all schools in the municipality should be included in the government’s plan of resuming face-to-face classes.
Pooten said PTA members have assured that no outsiders will be allowed to enter their villages to assure that no student will get infected of the SARS-CoV2, the virus that causes the Covid-19.
He also said they continue to maintain border checkpoints and triage.
He added non-residents, upon entry, are endorsed to the village officials.
The mayor said while the modular system is being adopted by most of the students, many parents are incapable of helping their children.
“Ano ba ang asahan mo na sila magtuturo sa mga anak nila eh sila mismo eh no read, no write. Wala talaga, nahihirapan ang estudyante natin,” he said. – PNA
