#WalangPasok – Class suspensions for October 3 2023

(UPDATED, 8:45 AM OF 3 OCTOBER 2023)

With parts of the country likely to experience inclement weather due to typhoon “Jenny” (international name: Koinu), local government executives are expected to announce the suspension of classes in their respective constituencies for 3 October 2023, Tuesday.

It must be stressed here that Department of Education order #37 series of 2022 from Vice President and concurrent Education Secretary Sara Duterte-Carpio mandates that in-person and online classes in both public and private schools as well as work in government-run schools are automatically suspended in areas where a storm warning signal has been raised. This means that there would be no classes up to senior high school in the following areas this October 3:

Under Signal #2 as of 5:00 AM, October 3:


Under Signal #1 as of 5:00 AM, October 3:

*Cagayan, including Babuyan Islands
*Northern and eastern Isabela
*Northern and central portions of Ilocos Norte
*Northeastern portion of Abra (Tineg, Lacub, Malibcong)
*Northern portion of Kalinga (Balbalan, Pinukpuk, Rizal, City of Tabuk)
*Ilocos Norte

The said order also says that local government executives can suspend classes if and when the  Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) raises a flood warning or orange and red rainfall warning in their respective constituencies.
