The COVID – 19 pandemic brought about anxiety and uncertainty to everyone especially to parents who have children studying under distance learning. Despite the grave health threats, the Department of Education mandates to continue education and instructs every school to launch the enrollment process this School Year 2021 once again – 2022. In pursuance of this, Col. E. De Leon Elementary School formulates a task force to facilitate the enrollment this coming August 16 – September 13, 2021. To carry out the enrollment process, all advisers were enjoined to conduct a parent/ guardian orientation on enrollment on Saturday, August 14, 2021, through Google meet. The primary aim of this virtual meeting is to discuss the guidelines on enrollment for S.Y. 2021-2022 in the context of continuing health emergency due to Covid – 19 and to assist parents in filling out the Modified Learner Enrollment and Survey Form (MLESF) accurately.
The guidelines on enrollment for this school year prioritize the health and safety of all that will be involved in the enrollment process. It stresses that “everyone’s health must be the number one priority and nothing else is more important.” It shall guide the parents, guardians, and teaching personnel in enrolling the learners for the school year 2021-2022 adhering to safety and health protocols.
In keeping with this, schools under Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) shall administer enrollment for the school year 2021-2022 remotely. That is thru online by filling out the MLESF. However, parents and guardians who have no means to access the form online may submit the modified learner enrollment and survey form to designated areas once ECQ is lifted.
