#WalangPasok – Class suspensions for November 20 2023

#WalangPasok – Class suspensions for November 20 2023

(UPDATED as of NOVEMBER 19, 11:30 AM)

Several local government units (LGU) as well as education institutions like the University of the Philippines Diliman have announced that classes will shift to online mode for November 20 as a response to the scheduled jeepney strike announced by the leaders of the transport group Pagkakaisa ng mga Samahan ng Tsuper at Operator Nationwide (PISTON).

For its part, the Department of Education issued a statement this Saturday that it will not suspend classes – leaving the decision to the discretion of LGUs and private school administrators.

Apart from the transport strike, the aftermath of the earthquake that hit parts of Mindanao last Friday and the persistent inclement weather may also prompt class suspension declarations. The Filipino Scribe will be updating this post if and when new information becomes available.
