The Southern Luzon State University clarified that there would be no certainty that the school will be holding a limited face-to-face class on January 31, 2022, following the CHED COVID-19 Advisory No. 9.
According to the advisory of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), the date of the Phase 2 of the implementation of limited face-to-face classes for all programs of HEIs under Alert Level 3 should begin on January 31, 2022 while those under Alert Level 2 may start limited face-to-face classes anytime. Furthermore, it was stated that the preventive suspension of limited face-to-face classes shall be based on the assessment and decision of the CMC of the HEI in consultation with the Local Task Force against COVID-19.
In a post, SLSU President Dr. Doracie B. Zoleta-Nantes stated that the decision of the university in conducting face-to-face class will be made after the SLSU Crisis Management Committee (CMC) consulted with the LGU officials in Lucban, Tayabas, Tiaong, Alabat, Lucena, Gumaca, Infanta, Polillo, Tagkawayan, and Catanauan. This is to ensure the safety of every stakeholder.
The university will release a memorandum regarding the opening of limited face-to-face classes once the CMC and other university officials discussed and consulted with the concerned stakeholders.
