According to Taguig’s local government, this came after the city recently breached 1 million COVID-19 vaccines administered, allowing the Department of Education (DepEd) to have confidence in the city’s capacity for in-person learning.

It added that the city also continues to have the lowest fatality rate with 308 or 0.78 percent record compared to the 1.90 percent of Metro Manila as of Sept. 11, 2021.

While face to face classes remain suspended, however, the current school year in the city will utilize a combination of distance learning methods “to deliver quality education to its students depending on the students’ and parents’ preferences.”

The city has also provided students in Taguig with school packages that include a bag, school uniform, P.E. uniform, raincoat, modules, supplies, emergency bag, and emergency kit.
