The Department of Education (DepEd) has ordered all public schools to implement face-to-face (F2F) classes starting Nov. 2. 

DepEd updated their Order 034 concerning F2F classes, titled “School Calendar and Activities for the School Year 2022–2023”. 

Meanwhile private schools are allowed to implement either five days of in-person classes, blended learning (both F2F and distance), or full distance learning. 

The earlier version of the memo in July 2022, called for all schools, both public and private, to implement full F2F classes starting Nov. 2.
