DepEd formalizes field trip moratorium

In an effort to ensure that students are safe during out of campus activities, the Department of Education has formalized the moratorium on field trips.

Education Secretary Leonor Briones has issued Memorandum No. 47, Series 2017, dated March 9, 2017 that formalizes the moratorium on field trips and other similar activities, following the tragic bus accident involving college students in Tanay, Rizal in February.

Briones said that the memorandum will be observed by all public elementary and secondary schools until the review and revision of related policies have been finalized. (Ina Hernando Malipot)
