School Suspension due to Tropical Storm Juaning

We do not copy and paste materials here but we'd like to make an exemption here as we try to help disseminate the information to everyone concerned. No classes for Wednesday, July 27, 2011.

Read below the announcement of DepEd Assistant Secretary Tonisito Umali: 

MANILA, Philippines (2nd UPDATE) – Department of Education (DepEd) announced that classes will be suspended in the National Capitol Region (NCR), CALABARZON, Region 3 and other parts of Luzon on Wednesday, due to the inclement weather brought by tropical storm “Juaning.”

In a radio interview with radio dzMM on Tuesday, DepEd Assistant Secretary Tonisito Umali said classes in preschool, elementary, and high school—both public and private—will be suspended in the following areas:
  • NCR
  • Cavite
  • Laguna
  • Batangas
  • Rizal
  • Quezon
  • Aurora
  • Bataan
  • Bulacan
  • Nueva Ecija
  • Pampanga
  • Tarlac
  • Zambales
Classes at the pre-school and elementary levels will be suspended in:
  • Occidental Mindoro
Classes at the kindergarten level will be suspended in:
  • Isabela
  • Cagayan
  • Nueva Vizcaya
Umali said the announcement for suspension of classes in Region 1 will be made at 10 p.m. Tuesday. Metro Manila and 16 other areas in Luzon have been placed under public storm warning signal number 2 because of tropical storm "Juaning," weather bureau PAGASA said Tuesday afternoon.

Under DepEd guidelines, classes in lower levels are automatically suspended in an area if it is placed under storm signal number 2 or higher.

The Commission on Higher Education (CHED), meanwhile, has yet to issue a statement for colleges and universities in Metro Manila and other areas. During previous typhoons, the CHED left the decision to suspend classes in the tertiary level to university officials.
