December 13 - Last of Classes for 2019

As per DepEd Order No. 007, s. 2019, the OFFICIAL START OF CHRISTMAS BREAK will be on DECEMBER 15, 2019. While the resumption of classes shall be on JANUARY 6, 2020 which falls on the first Monday of the new year.

Looking at the SCHOOL CALENDAR OF ACTIVITIES below, you will see that the official start of CHRISTMAS BREAK will be on December 15, 2019. But for the students and teachers, it is clear that December 13, Friday, will be the last day of classes for 2019. This is because the December 14 and December 15 falls on Saturday and Sunday which is not scheduled for regular classes. Which also means that every school should abide by this schedule and Christmas Party for students and teachers should also be scheduled properly.

In the Facebook post, Cir Bobot, CPESTF President, he said that the Last Day of Classes for 2019 will be on December 13 since December 14 & 15 falls on Saturday and Sunday. Below is his quoted post:

"Our classes in december is only up to december 15 bssed on the calendar of activities of the deped but since december 14 and 15 falls on saturday and sunday which is not a regular day for classes logically the last day.will be december 13...besides R A. 4166 allows school activities and meeting be done on regular school days instead of saturday and sunday.
1. If the principal insist that christmas party be done on a saturday it is incumbent for them to release a memo which is duly approved by the division office
2. Note that requests to require the attendance of public school teachers during the said period must satisfy the following conditions
2. 1. A letter-request is submitted by the school head to the Schools Division Office.
2. 2. Sufficient justification is provided to establish that exigency of public service exists.
2. 3. The request is duly approved by the Schools Division Superintendent (SDS).

For purposes of this issuance, “exigency of public service” refers to a situation where service is urgently needed and where any delay in its execution and delivery will adversely affect the outcome of the service to clients and its effective and efficient delivery.

Lets always keep our teachers and education workers safe and properly compensated

in the service of caloocan teachers
CPESTF President"

Exemption of this schedule may apply to private schools as always.
