DepEd suspends classes from May 2-13 due to elections

In line with the upcoming May 2022 elections, the Department of Education (DepEd) announced on Monday that classes in all levels in public schools are suspended on May 2 to 13.

The DepEd reiterated its Order No. 29 series of 2021 issued on August 5 last year, suspending classes due to “National Election-related activities” of teachers and the department’s personnel.

“Ang mga guro ay inaasahan pa ring mag-report sa kanilang paaralan sa mga araw na walang election-related duties o activities [The teachers are still expected to report in their respective schools on days with no election-related duties or activities],” the DepEd, however, said.

Teaching and non-teaching personnel will render their services in the upcoming elections.

Teachers will serve as Electoral Board (EB) and Poll Workers as over 67 million Filipinos are expected to cast their votes on May 9, 2022.
