DepEd: Classes suspended in selected areas of Luzon

Classes in Region V, Lipa City, Batangas, San Pablo City, Laguna, Cavite, Camarines Norte, Dasmarinas City, Tagaytay and NCR have been suspended due to topical depression “Juaning.”

All classes in the Bicol region have been suspended, the DepEd announced Tuesday morning through its official Twitter account.

Lipa City, Batangas announced there will be no classes for students in kindergarten, elementary and secondary levels due to the presence of heavy rains and strong winds.

The Department of Education (DepEd) also announced the afternoon suspension of classes in NCR for kindergarten, elementary and secondary levels for public and private schools.

In Cavite, classes are suspended in kindergarten, elementary and secondary levels in Bacoor, Imus, Noveleta, Rosario, Kawit, Tanza and General Trias.

Classes in all levels have been suspended in Camarines Norte, while classes in Dasmarinas City and Tagaytay have also been called off.

According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), “Juaning” will continue to bring rains over Central and Southern Luzon and to the Visayas region.

DepEd reminded the public of its “Automatic Suspension Guideline.”  For areas in Signal No. 1, classes are called off for kindergarten students and for Signal No. 2, classes are immediately called off for kindergarten, elementary and secondary levels.  DepEd also reiterated that the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) has the authority to decide whether to suspend classes for college levels and to contact them –and not the DepEd—for any queries.
