Ready for 100% Full Face to Face Classes?


The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) said it is ready for the resumption of 100 percent face-to-face classes in August.

Atty. Victor Nuñez, Head of MMDA Traffic Discipline Office (TDO) - Enforcement, said the agency has implemented measures to ensure the safety of children returning to school in the next school year.
Measures including an ongoing repainting of pedestrian lanes within the immediate vicinities of schools in Metro Manila and meeting with school administrators and local traffic bureaus to discuss road safety in school zones.
"We will have a meeting with the school administrators, Parent-Teacher Associations (PTA), and local traffic bureaus in the National Capital Region to discuss road safety checks in school zones," said Nuñez.
“Let me emphasize that road safety is a shared responsibility. We will ensure that enforcement of traffic laws, in constant coordination with the Department of Transportation, Land Transportation Office, and Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board, are in place to keep tabs on motorists to protect the safety of vulnerable road users,” he added.
Furthermore, Transportation Undersecretary Mark Steven Pastor stressed the importance of raising awareness to all road users and implement road safety interventions.
“Our primary advocacy is to strictly enforce existing road safety laws. Children go out of their houses and take public transportation to go to school. Hence, we have to protect them as we embark on the full implementation of face-to-face classes,” Pastor said.
It was noted that the Department of Education earlier encouraged schools to conduct face-to-face classes amid the country’s low classification risk for COVID-19.
