DepEd Statement on the shooting incident at PNHS

The Department of Education offers its sincere condolences to families who lost their loved ones following yesterday’s shooting incident at Pangasinan National High School (PNHS). We are one with them in this time of bereavement and are deeply saddened as we count, among those killed, our very own teachers and members of the DepEd family.

We at DepEd condemn all forms of violence especially as they occur in schools. We maintain that schools are zones of peace where the safety and well-being of students, teachers, and personnel are of utmost importance.

While classes at PNHS remain suspended today, our field offices are working closely together with other agencies and offices in dealing with the situation. We commit to foster a sense of normalcy by providing the necessary psychological interventions to the community of PNHS. We enjoin local authorities to persevere in ensuring that justice prevails
