5,257 enroll in Tabuk City High School’s modular class
CITY OF TABUK, Kalinga, – Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, some 5,257 students enrolled in the modular class of the Tabuk City National High School (TCNHS) for school year 2020-2021 that will open this October 5.
TCNHS Principal Mildred Cabay disclosed that enrolment this school year increased by 9.5 percent compared to last year’s 4,800. She attributed the increase to the transfer of students from other private schools and those coming home under the ‘Balik Probinsya’ program of the government.
This school year, TCNHS will offer modular modality since face-face class is not allowed under the COVID-19 health protocols, Cabay explained.
Distribution of class modules will start October 2.
In the far-flung barangays, TCNHS teachers and staff going home on weekends bring with them the modules which they turn over in barangay halls which serve as pick up centers.
For students living within the city, parents can get the modules directly at the TCNHS. Pick-up and retrieval of modules is every Friday.
As supplement to the modular learning, Cabay sees the need to add online instruction and profiling of students is now being done.
As preparation to the opening of the school year, the school has reached-out to parents during the 52 barangay-level sessions of parents’ orientation, Cabay said.
She solicited the cooperation of parents and LGUs to make the school year productive amid the COVID-19 pandemic.**JDP/LL-PIA CAR, Kalinga
