Dear Brent Family,
It is now December, and we have no official word from the government on regulations for returning to in-person classes. With Christmas break approaching we feel it is important to give our families time to plan. The school will likewise need time to review any guidelines on returning to classrooms once those announcements are made. Furthermore, travel and family gatherings during the Christmas and New Year holidays increase the potential for spreading COVID-19, and make it prudent to include a time gap before any potential return to classrooms.
Therefore, Monday, February 1, 2021 is now the earliest possible date for returning to in-person instruction. Whether or not we actually do return at that time is still dependent on future government regulations.
I hope this helps in organizing the next few months. Stay safe and have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Brent International School Manila
