Ipinagbabawal pa rin ang face-to-face graduation at end-of-school-year (EOSY) ceremonies ngayong 2021 dahil sa banta ng COVID-19.

Ito ang nilinaw ng Department of Education (DepEd) sa isang memorandum na inilabas nitong Lunes, May 24, 2021.

"To ensure the protection of the health and safety of learners, teachers, and personnel, as well as parents and other stakeholders, any face-to-face ceremony is not allowed,” ayon sa DepEd memo na pirmado ni Education Secretary Leonor Briones.

Inaasahang magtatapos ang school year 2020-2021 sa July 10.

Kaya naman ang graduation at EOSY ceremonies para sa kindergarten, Grades 6, 10, at 12 ay maaaring ganapin mula July 12 hanggang 16, 2021.

Iminumungkahing virtual ang gagawing graduation o moving-up rites "that will run in less than two hours to consider the internet connectivity that will be consumed.”

Pinapayagan din ng kagawaran ang broadcast graduation rites sa social media, pero sa kondisyong makuha ang consent ng mga magulang ng mga estudyante.

Pinapayagan naman ang mga pribadong paaralan na itakda ang kanilang sariling schedule para sa virtual graduation ceremonies depende sa kanilang school calendars.

"Private schools shall be guided by their approved school calendars or revised school calendar," ayon sa memo.

Noong nakaraang school year ay ipinagbawal din ng DepEd ang face-to-face graduation at EOSY rites bunsod ng banta ng pandemya.
