#WalangPasok – Class suspensions for 31 July 2023 due to monsoon rains
(UPDATED AS OF JULY 31, 9:00 AM)
Despite not making a landfall in any part of the Philippines, tropical storm “Falcon” (international name: Khanun) is expected to continue intensifying the southwest monsoon rains experienced throughout the country for the next three days.
According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), “Falcon” is expected to stay in the Philippine area of responsibility until Tuesday.
In line with this, local government executives across the country are expected to announce class suspensions for 31 July 2023, Monday. The Filipino Scribe will be updating this post if and when new information becomes available.

REMINDER TO COLLEGE STUDENTS:
According to the Commission on Higher Education’s Memorandum Order #15 series of 2012, “students who are unable to report to class or participate in scheduled activities such as exams due to inclement weather shall be given consideration and be allowed to make up for the missed class or activity.” This must be the case especially during instances where the local government executive did not announce suspension of classes.
