Class suspensions – August 14, 2012

Storm warning signals has been raised over provinces in northern Luzon  by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) in connection with tropical storm Helen. As of Monday night (11:00 PM), the following typhoon alerts had been raised:

Signal #2: Cagayan and Isabela

*No classes from preschool to high school

Signal #1: Abra, Aurora, Quirino, Ilocos Norte, Nueva Vizcaya, Ifugao, Mountain Province, Kalinga, Apayao, the Babuyan and Calayan group of islands, and the Batanes group of islands.

*No classes from preschool to kindergarten

According to guidelines set by the Department of Education, classes in preschool and kindergarten levels, both public and private, shall be automatically cancelled or suspended in areas where Signal #1 is hoisted. Meanwhile, classes in elementary and high school will be suspended once signal #2 is raised. College and postgraduate classes will only be suspended once Signal #3 has been raised.

Important note:

Regardless of these guidelines, local government units particularly those in flood prone and high risk areas can also suspend classes by virtue of Executive Order 66. Such announcements should be made not later than 4:30 AM. If the cancellation is meant only for afternoon classes, it should be made not later than 11:00 AM.
