The Department of Education’s step in reopening the classes at the elementary level is very challenging as the virus still exist and dangers students and teachers from contracting the virus. For the teachers and the principal, performing the tasks set by the national and local IATF including manual getting of temperature, attendance, and sending notifications to parents is time-consuming and still, both the students and they face the risk of contracting the virus. Using the scrum framework of the agile methodology, the researchers conducted a series of interviews with the person in charge to discuss the challenges experienced while performing these tasks. All the challenges were listed as user stories, given priority, and designed corresponding modules as solutions. Using raspberryPi, thermal sensors, Mobile System for Global Communication (GSM) modules, and a web application, the researchers designed an Internet of Things-based solution. The researchers presented the output to the principal and received a go signal for implementation. During the run of the implementation, the system performed well according to its design and received positive feedback from the teachers and the principal. However, as the needs of the real world change with time, it is recommended to do further research to further enhance the system whenever the real world demands.
