To:                    Ateneo de Manila Grade School Community
From:                The Headmaster
Subject:            Health Break/ Shift in Instruction Mode
___________________________________________________________________________
 
The spike in Covid cases in our country has affected the households of our students, teachers and staff. It is testing the resiliency of our school systems in the areas of  substitutions, manpower complement, the delivery of instruction, etc.
 
As such, the school decided to declare a health break for our students and faculty from January 10-11, 2022, as well as announce a change in the modality of our instruction in the days that follow.
 

  1. There will be no classes during the 2-day health break but offices will remain open.
  2. All levels (K-6) will shift to asynchronous mode from January 12-18, 2022. This will cover the Module 2 lessons and academic requirements covered by this period.
  3. Scheduled Activity and Formation modules (CoCA, CMO/SIO, Cura, Athletics) will likewise be given asynchronously.
  4. All academic and non-academic requirements are still expected to be submitted by their due dates. However, accommodations will be made for late submissions for those with valid reasons.
  5. We continue to encourage the community to participate in our Daily Masses at 7:30 am via the AGS CMO YouTube Channel. Our schoolwide mass in honor of the Feast of the Sto. Niño scheduled on January 14 at 8:00 am will push through. A special blessing for children will happen during the mass, which will be live streamed through this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hptPyDhlZVQ .

 
Now, more than ever, we see the need to unite as one community as part of one Church to storm the heavens with fervent prayers for protection and recovery from any form of illness. 
 
We hope that this move will give the members of our community the time to recover, the time to heal, and the time to gather ourselves in time for the resumption of synchronous classes on Wednesday, January 19, 2022.
 
And so, as we continue to monitor the health situation of our community and our country, we invite everyone to keep that spirit of openness and trust that not all is lost. God works through the seemingly empty spaces in our lives and fills them up with graces which our faculties cannot provide. God completes us. God provides.
 
Still, a Happy New Year to all.
 

Seeing all things new in Christ,
 

(Sgd) Mr. Jervy M. Robles
Headmaster
