Amid the announcement of the public transport groups that they are already ending their strike, the city governmenf of Manila’s “Libreng Sakay” had its last day yesterday, while the ‘asynchronous’ or ‘online classes’ in all public schools and levels in the city will continue until March 11, 2023 as announced by Mayor Honey Lacuna.
“Classes in public schools in all levels will stay in asynchronous classes until March 11, Saturday, as previously announced,” said Lacuna’s spokesperson Atty. Princess Abante.
“Until today sila (libreng sakay) bi-biyahe. Will post announcement today (Miyerkules),” Abante added.
It will be recalled that the holding of asynchronous classes was previously ordered by Lacuna in order to avert the scenario of having students being stranded in the streets.
Lacuna also deployed over 300 forms of transport like buses, trucks and e-trikes to ferry passengers who may be stranded as a result of the announced weeklong strike.
