Due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the NCR+ bubble, Marist School implemented an academic break from April 12 to 15, 2021 in order for them to focus on their health and family concerns.
The school suspended all synchronous and asynchronous activities so that students, parents, guardians, and personnel can “focus on their health and family concerns”—as stated in a circular from the school president last April 8.
“Indeed, the health, safety, and welfare of our stakeholders, especially our students, remain to be the primary priority of Marist School during this health crisis. We pray that the break [gave] you the opportunity to attend your overall well-being and family concerns,” Br. Allan De Castro, FMS, school president, said.
He added that students who have health concerns related to COVID-19 must coordinate with their respective assistant principal and teachers in order to be given special consideration and assistance, especially on the submission of requirements.
Meanwhile, counseling sessions for referred cases were conducted by the Guidance Office for Grades 7 and 8.
The Guidance Office also tackled self-motivation for selected grade 10 sections, while sessions regarding gender sensitivity began that week for Grades 11 and 12.
The schedule of activities in the school calendar were moved due to the academic break.
The administrative and support offices such as the Business’s, Registrar’s, Assistant Principal’s and President’s Offices operated in a work-from-home environment to minimize contact with other people. David Lumba
