The Department of Education (DepEd) earlier stated that attendance in face-to-face classes is voluntary for students. Those who will not participate may continue with the modular mode of learning.

Some public and private schools already started limited face-to-face classes on March 21 based on the DepEd Joint Memorandum Circular No. 1, Series of 2021, or the Operational Guidelines on the implementation of limited face-to-face learning modality.

The partial list of schools include 66 public schools and six private schools in Narra, Taytay, Dumaran, El Nido, Quezon, Rizal, Aborlan, San Vicente, Roxas, Sofronio Española, Brooke’s Point, Bataraza, Coron, Culion and Busuanga.
