#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)
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.
