DepEd is suspending all scheduled national and regional events

In light of recent developments in COVID-19, DepEd is suspending all scheduled national and regional events involving students from different localities, such as the Palaro Regional Meets, until further notice. The conduct of the Palarong Pambansa in May will be upon the advice of the Palaro board.

However, as announced yesterday, we are proceeding with the National Festival of Talents (NFOT) and National Schools Press Conference (NSPC), since participants are already at the venue. Heightened precautions are being implemented at NFOT and NSPC, which include foregoing elements of the programs that can be avoided (such as parades, etc.).

Decisions on other DepEd activities shall await definitive advisory from the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) that we hope to receive tomorrow, to ensure informed, coordinated and proportionate response.
