Pasig City’s public school students will have to put #WalangPasok to rest as classes will resume without suspensions under the distance or blended learning setup when there are heavy rains, Mayor Vico Sotto said on Thursday.

There will be no suspensions in public schools as students don’t leave the house and attendance is not strict, Sotto said.

Private schools are urged to come up with their own policies based on their current system, he said.

In succeeding Twitter posts, Sotto quoted the Department of Education as saying that strict monitoring of attendance will be foregone if internet connection is weak.

Public school students have printed worksheets or preloaded lectures in the distributed tablets that may be accessed even without internet connection, he said.
