Marjorie Barretto sends off daughter Erich to first face-to-face classes in two years
Marjorie Barretto has finally taken her youngest daughter Erich to school to attend face-to-face classes for the first time since the pandemic started.
The actress showed Erich wearing her school uniform, getting off their car and walking to the school’s gate while waving goodbye to her, as seen on her Instagram page yesterday, April 5.
“Slowly but surely our children are going back to normal, our new normal… I can’t believe it’s been more than [two years] since I last dropped her off to school,” Barretto said. “She is so grown up now compared to the Grade 2 student that she was that time, her uniform [is two] sizes bigger now!”
Barretto then expressed excitement over her daughter’s reunion with her classmates, as well as Erich finally being able to chat and play with other kids her age.
“She seems happy, that makes our [two] hours in traffic getting to school worth it,” the actress added.

Aside from Erich, Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo’s son Lucho also returned to face-to-face classes this week.
The expansion of limited face-to-face classes in areas under alert levels 1 and 2 was approved by President Duterte in January, after the pilot run of physical classes last year.
By late last month, more than 10,000 schools were allowed by the Department of Education to resume in-person classes. Students participating in the face-to-face setup must have a written consent from their parents and only vaccinated teachers are allowed to hold physical classes. /ra
