"We thank the President for his full support to the delivery of quality basic education for the incoming school year," Briones said in a statement.

DepEd added that the school calendar for SY 2021-2022 will be released soon.

"We hope for our stakeholders’ continued cooperation and support as we prepare for another challenging yet worthwhile endeavor of educating our children amid a global health crisis," Briones added.

On June 23, DepEd advised private schools and non-DepEd public schools that they may already start their classes for next school year provided that there are no face-to-face classes, and that the school will be strictly implementing only distance learning modalities.
