The Public School System will begin classes on Sept. 3 and will be running classes even on austerity Fridays, which falls on Fridays during government payday.
Education Commissioner Glenn Muña confirmed that PSS will be holding regular, whole-day sessions on austerity Fridays.
He said all public schools, with the exclusion of five, will be having regular sessions. The five schools are slated to have double sessions.
According to the Saipan Tribune archives, the five schools that are currently under double sessions are Oleai Elementary School, San Vicente Elementary School, Francisco M. Sablan Middle School, William S. Reyes Elementary School, and Koblerville Elementary School, due to the damage caused by Super Typhoon Yutu.
According to the current PSS School Year 2019-2020 calendar, PSS will have 180 instructional days. Classes will end by mid-June.
