Updates regarding automatic suspension of classes due to bad weather brought by Tropical Storm Glenda as of Monday, July 14, 2014.

Suspension of Classes July 14, 2014

The Department of Education says class suspensions are declared by the local government unit (LGU) in affected areas, per Executive Order No. 66 issued by President Benigno Aquino III in January 2012.

Basic guidelines:
  • Signal No. 1 - No classes in Kindergarten
  • Signal No. 2 - No classes in Kindergarten, Elementary and High School
  • Signal No. 3 - No classes in ALL LEVELS including tertiary level
State weather bureau PAGASA announced 11 a.m. Monday that public storm warning signal number 1 (winds of 30-60 kph is expected in at least 36 hours) has been raised over Masbate, Burias Island, Ticao Island, Marinduque, Quezon, Polilio Island, Batangas, Cavite, Laguna, Rizal, Bulacan, Pampanga, Bataan, Zambales, Tarlac, Nueva Ecija, Pangasinan, Southern Aurora, Metro Manila, and Northern Samar due to Tropical Storm Glenda.

It means there's suspension of classes in the kindergarten level in the aforementioned areas.

Meanwhile, signal number 2 (winds of 61-100 Kph is expected in at least 24 hours) is up in Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Catanduanes, Albay, and Sorsogon. There should be no class in the kindergarten, elementary and high school levels in these areas.

However, DepEd says the LGU (city / municipality / barangay) has discretion to automatically suspend classes in affected areas where there is no storm signal.
