NAGA CITY — Public and private schools, including higher education institutions, in Camarines Sur are urged to adopt flexible learning modalities due to the above-normal temperature and drier conditions experienced in the province.

Citing that the province has recorded a heat index ranging from 37 degrees Celsius up to 44 degrees Celsius, Governor Luigi Villafuerte said the continued heat exposure is detrimental to the health of the general public.


In a memorandum released by the Office of the Governor and the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDRRMC) in Camarines Sur province on Wednesday, April 3, one of the interventions recommended to mitigate risks from extreme heat is to adjust the learning delivery across all educational levels to limit exposure to heat and ensure continuity of education.


Aside from this, the education and health clusters of PDRRMC also recommended turning the evacuation centers into alternative classrooms to alleviate room congestion as well as easing the requirement to use school uniforms on campus.

Field trips, camping, outreach programs, and other prolonged activities will also be minimized.

Earlier in Goa town, a public elementary school implemented an hourly water break to make sure that the students were hydrated during the conduct of the classes amid extreme heat inside the classrooms.

In Naga City, Mayor Nelson Legacion, authorized the school principals to suspend in-person classes and shift to different learning modalities such as modular distance learning.
