  4. The Senior High School (SHS) Diploma will be distributed only when the Special Order is issued  by the DepEd Region XI.

The guidelines will be presented later when the final decision is taken.

We want to assure you  that the administration  is most concerned with the health and safety of  everyone particularly,  of the students, the faculty and staff and is taking all the precautionary measures for their protection from the COVID-19.  Let us be united in abiding by the policies and guidelines mandated by the government in the prevention, control, and mitigation of this disease. Let us practice physical distancing, wearing a mask, and  the washing of our hands frequently. Please be patient and try to  understand that this  is not an easy situation  to  deal with for all of us.

Let us guide our children in praying for God’s intervention in this time of uncertainty and ask Him to put an end to this crisis soon. With Mother Mary, let us entrust to the Lord our supplications as we thank Him for the graces He continuously bestows on us.

Thank you and God bless each one of us .
