The Department of Education (DepEd) said Monday it would implement a ‘drop box’ enrollment system starting Tuesday, June 16.
The drop box enrollment system will be conducted along with the prevailing remote enrollment until the end of June, DepEd said.
“These drop box/kiosks, which could be found in barangay halls or schools, will be set-up only for picking up and dropping-off the Learner Enrollment Survey Form (LESF),” DepEd said.
The following are the guidelines for the drop box enrollment system:
• Drop box kiosks will only cater to those parents who do not have access to remote means (text, call, online and social media) to communicate with their schools but wish to enroll their child.
• Only one adult from a household with quarantine pass will be allowed to go to these kiosks.
• Parents and guardians needing assistance are advised to ask their respective barangay leadership in this transaction.
• Parents and guardians must be familiar with the advisory of the school or barangay on designated pick up and submission points before going out.
“With this development, we reiterate that we are one with the President in saying that the health of our learners is non-negotiable and no face-to-face classes will be conducted until the safety of all is assured,” DepEd said.
Teachers and staff who will man the drop box kiosks will be provided with face masks and disinfectants to ensure that minimum health standards are observed.
