In an online press conference on Friday, DepEd Secretary Briones said that she received a message from Malacañang to postpone the school year opening of classes which was scheduled August 24, 2020

“As per the memorandum of the President, he has given approval to the recommendation of DepEd which I repeat, we submitted last August 8. Thus, we will now implement such a decision to defer school opening to October 5,” DepEd Secretary Leonor Briones said in an online briefing.
