Dear Brent Students and Families,

I checked in on a number of teachers this morning, and our distance learning trial-run is, on the whole, going very well. This is positive since on Monday, March 16 we will continue with distance learning for all students for the foreseeable future.

The government’s implementation of the quarantine in Metro Manila has many details to work out, but it seems clear that students are unlikely to return to classes on campus until after Easter. We will update you as the situation develops.

While online instruction has some limitations, there are also opportunities here for students to take on greater ownership of their learning. Parents, thank you for providing guidance at home, and students, thank you for showing the grit that comes from being a member of the Brent Pride.
