Dear Students, Parents, Faculty and Staff of Xavier School,
Further to my circular dated August 20, I would like to announce that our third trimester from January to March will still be conducted online following our Xavier School E-Learning (XSEL) structures.
Although public restrictions on movement and assembly are slowly being lifted, a full return to onsite learning will still not be possible given current trends and realities. Instead, if national and local government authorities as well as the Department of Education allow, some special activities in school can be organized for Grades 10-12 students. We are open to this possibility and will be considering it seriously, also as part of planning for various modalities next school year, 2021-2022, which we expect to begin on June 14, 2021.
Kindly note that we have planned the calendar carefully so that regardless of the modality of Xavier education, whether this is onsite or online, we can return to a June-March calendar by next school year.
Please be reminded of the following dates. Other details will be announced in due time.
October 29, Thursday
Start of Mid-Term Break
November 4, Wednesday
December 19, Saturday
Start of Christmas break
January 4, 2021, Monday
Faculty and Staff resume work
January 5, Tuesday
Start of Third Trimester
March 19, Friday
End of Third Trimester
As promised during enrollment, there will be refunds made in March for certain miscellaneous fees that are under-utilized during the XSEL period.
Once again, let me thank you all for the great spirit of openness, flexibility, and generosity that you have exhibited during this extraordinary school year.
Thank you very much.
Fr. Aristotle C. Dy, SJ, Ph.D
