Class suspensions for November 16 2015 due to APEC summit

Classes in all levels in the City of Pasay as well as in several universities in Metro Manila are suspended for Monday, November 16. The announcements are in line with the preparations being done for the country’s hosting of the 2015 Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit this week.

In line with that, traffic rerouting schemes will be implemented, which will certainly make it difficult for students to travel to their respective schools.
