To Our Beloved Partners, the Parents and Guardians,


Greetings from the Management, Faculty and Staff of Statefields School, Inc.! We hope that everyone is in the best state of health!


We would like to take this opportunity to convey to you our heartfelt gratitude for deciding to stay with SSI and for your all-out support and participation in consultative surveys, parenting seminars, community outreach activities, and other endeavors that we have so far undertaken. We do appreciate as well parents/guardians who have consented to their children’s/wards’ participation in various school events where these students’ talents and intelligences were showcased. It has been a fruitful and productive year.


At this time, planning and preparations are ongoing for the forthcoming SY 2021-2022. All of us are looking forward with a lot of prayers and so much anticipation for the situation to normalize and allow the smooth transition to the holding of face-to-face classes. However, it is unfortunate that we are at the moment still faced with the following actualities:

  • The slow roll-out of COVID-19 vaccines here in the Philippines;
  • The Philippine Government pronouncement that achieving the target herd immunity from the virus, that is at least 70% of the population had been inoculated, may have to wait until 2023;
  • The absence or unavailability of a highly efficacious vaccine for children (17 years old and below) , which according to the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) record comprise at least 31% of the country’s population, at this time and most probably until late 2021;
  • The emergence of more contagious COVID-19 variants here and in some parts of the world, particularly those variants identified from Brazil, United Kingdom, South Africa, and California in the United States of America; and
  • The sudden surge in the number of positive cases in the last several days and the seemingly inability of authorities to instill discipline on the majority of the populace for the continued observance of health and safety protocols like the wearing of face masks and face shields, proper hand washing, and physical distancing.

In view of these troubling circumstances and to be consistent with our Leaning Continuity Plan, Statefields Education Continuum Uplifting Excellence and Resilience (SECURE), SSI will still implement 100% Online Distance Learning (ODL) in all levels this coming School Year 2021-2022.


Rest assured that our ODL delivery will be reflective of the school’s Philosophy, Vision and Mission statements, Objectives, and Goals and in consideration of concerns and recommendations consolidated from the separate Surveys administered to the Students and the Parents; One-Hour Consultative Sessions by the undersigned with Officers of the Student Government in the Elementary School, Junior High School, and Senior High School, Corps of Junior and Senior Prefects, and Editorial Board of our School Publication – The Linkage; and SWOT Analysis conducted involving all the school Departments and Offices.


SSI is and will always be zealously committed to promote and serve the best interest of your children/wards. With our continued partnership, we can surely bring out the best in them.


Thank you. Stay safe!




Very respectfully yours,


DANIEL O. CASTILLO

School Principal
