    Can I ask for the guideline of the school b4 anything else.. B4 I enroll my child again. Tnx.

  2. im wondering whether the tuition fee will remain the same thru the online platform you will be using since there would only be limited use of energy bcoz there will be less use of lightings, aircons and other related electrical machines.

    will there be new computation of energy fee? and other related miscellenous fees?

    how about the hoursnof studies online? continuous use of electrical gadget such as computer , ipads and phone is also bad for the children specially in their eyes.

    gaano katagal ang online platform class nila?

    Thanks for the updates,

    Will there be a discount in tuition due to the added expenses from the parents (CPU, internet connection etc.). I believe the school’s overhead/expenses should decrease since students will not be attending school physically.

    What are the guidelines for the online distancing learning? Will the teachers be able to see the students online? How will the books be distributed, assignments and test graded? I have two grade school students and thinking of enrolling our 3 year old, how will this work?

    It appears that the parents will be the ones to do the heavy lifting of going to the school and picking up said materials. The only issue here is that we can pick up the virus along the way and bring it home to our family members.

    I believe in education but first and foremost safety and health are the top priority for my children.

    Best regards,

    Dear St. James,

    I noticed that my original comment was either deleted or not approved.

    Again Thank you for the updates.

    I believe tuition for school year 2020-2021 should be discounted since parents will be shouldering additional expenses ie buying computers, laptop, adding internet connectivity etc. St James’ overhead expenses should decrease mainly electricity and maintenance of the school since our children will not be physically attending classes.

    I would like to know more about the guidelines of your “ONLINE DISTANCE LEARNING” how will the books, materials, journals, tests and grading of these test be given/administered? Will the teachers view the students online? How many hours will these classes be? I have 2 children that are grade school students at St James and I was planning to enroll our 3 year old as well. How will this be done? Note due to covid-19, I have been regulated to work from home. That means the 4 of us will be competing for 1 computer in our house, plus my wife is an online seller. This is something that St. James needs to consider, I believe several parents will be in that same situation as well.

    Going back to the books and school materials how will this be distributed? Will it be delivered to our homes? I believe parents will be doing the heavy lifting going to the school to pick up said materials and bringing them back and forth. This is alarming because every time a parent leaves to pick up school materials there is a possibility that they can bring back the virus to their family.

    I value the education for my children but safety and health is far more important right now.

    Again I will be waiting for the guidelines, answers to my queries and please allow this comment to be posted since other parents should be in the know.

    Best regards,

    Reinier
