This study aims to thoroughly examine the efficiency of implementing hybrid learning and to understand whether students are still uneasy despite efforts to return to the old normal. The students interviewed for this research study are high school students at St. Mary’s College, Quezon City. These students have been in face-to-face classes and know the measures and protocols given in school. Six different informants, grade levels 7–12, were interviewed to get a variety of unbiased perspectives regarding their safety with COVID-19 in school. The sampling method was purposive, and data was gathered through face-to-face interviews. The researchers concluded that the informants have confidence in the school’s safety measures and protocols. The researchers also found that the informants’ perception is that they remain fearful of getting infected with COVID-19, but they’re not as afraid as they were in the past. The students of St. Mary’s College, Quezon City, are still willing to continue the hybrid learning system maintained by the school, knowing COVID-19 is a severe threat and should not be taken lightly because of its potential risk.
