Suspension of Classes on December 5, 2012 due to Bagyong 'Pablo'

The Department of Education (DepEd) said automatic suspension guidelines take effect in areas with storm warning signals due to Typhoon Pablo.

For areas affected by strong rains and/or flooding but without storm signal, the education department urged the public to tune in for announcements from the respective local government units (LGUs).

So far for Wednesday, December 5, only the province of Cebu declared suspension of classes in all levels, but for sure there will be class suspensions in areas devastated by Typhoon Pablo. We’re still waiting for the latest weather update from PAGASA and the situational report from the National Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC).

At 3AM, the state weather bureau posted on Twitter that the eye of Typhoon Pablo was located at 190 kilometers East of Puerto Princesa City, Palawan (read the update here).

Executive Order No. 66 states that classes at the pre-school/kindergarten level in areas under storm signal number 1 are automatically suspended or cancelled.

When there’s signal number 2, classes at the pre-school, elementary and secondary levels in storm-hit areas are automatically cancelled or suspended.

Classes in all levels (pre-school, elementary, secondary, and college including graduate school) as well as work in all government offices are automatically cancelled or suspended when signal number 3 or higher is raised in affected areas.
