    The education agency released an official statement on Tuesday saying that they are saddened with the recent cases of suicides among teachers and students. However, they clarified that initial investigations on the cases showed that learning modules or distance learning were not the cause of death.

    “Nais naming ipanawagan na itigil ang pagkonekta nito sa mga modyul o sa distance learning,” DepEd said.

    "Nakatanggap na kami ng mga ulat mula sa kinauukulan, maging mga pahayag ng mga pamilya, at mga inisyal na imbestigasyon ng mga kaso at wala sa alinmang insidente ang tumutukoy sa distance learning bilang pangunahing sanhi ng mga ito,” DepEd added.

    The agency further warned individuals who continue to spread misinformation to undermine the efforts of DepEd.

    “Binabalaan din namin ang publiko sa mga grupo o indibidwal na ginagamit ang mga nasabing insidente upang siraan at isantabi ang mga pagsisikap ng Kagawaran," DepEd stated.

    “Naipaabot sa kaalaman ng DepEd ang mga pagsubok na hatid ng kasalukuyang sitwasyong mayroon tayo, kasama na rito ang malungkot na balitang may mga guro at mag-aaral ang pumanaw sa gitna ng krisis,” it added.

    DepEd reiterated the sensitivity of the issue and the privacy of the victims and their families.

    "Hinihiling namin sa publiko na igalang ang pribadong buhay ng pamilyang naiwan at gayundin ang pag-iwas sa mga kuro-kuro ukol sa sanhi ng pagkamatay ng kanilang kaanak,” DepEd said.
