“Classes in NCR will remain suspended tomorrow, Sept 27, for kinder, elementary and high school, for both private and public schools.” Deped tweeted at around 9:30 p.m. (local time) on Monday.

Isabela, Quirino, Nueva Viscaya and Cagayan: Classes in kinder, elementary and H.S. are suspended tomorrow, Sept 27.” Deped tweeted an hour earlier.

Apparently, Deped is following its guidelines in suspending classes since PAGASA declared a Public Storm Signal No. 2 in Metro Manila as of 11 p.m. on Monday due to typhoon ‘Pedring’.

According to Deped guidelines, classes in pre-school, elementary, and high school in public and private schools will automatically be suspended if Public Storm Signal No. 2 is being raised in an area.

Meanwhile, ABS-CBN News reported on Monday night that Far Eastern University (FEU) announced that all classes in FEU Manila, FEU Makati, FEU East Asia and FEU Diliman are suspended on Tuesday.

Apparently, the Commission on Higher Education (CHEd) leaves the authority of suspending classes in colleges and universities to the respective schools, except for Public Storm Signal No. 3 where college classes as well as for graduate schools are automatically suspended.

With this, PAGASA is advising the public to be aware on its latest update on typhoon ‘Pedring’ on 11 p.m. on Monday and on 5 a.m. on Tuesday via online, TV and radio shows.

While Deped noted that suspension of classes is based on PAGASA latest weather update, local officials and parents of young students is being advised to know the flooded areas and may allow the kids even not to go to school even if there is no public storm signal.
