School Closings

Parents will be reminded of scheduled school closings through a circular. In case of an emergency closing due to circumstances other than extreme weather conditions and flooding, the school will exert its best efforts in notifying the parents as soon as possible through the Telephone Brigade organized by the parent representatives of each class. In cases of typhoon and flooding, please be guided by the following DepEd Order No. 59 Series of 2003:

Revised Guidelines on the Suspension of Classes When Typhoons and Other Calamities Occur

A. Automatic Suspension of Classes

Automatic suspension is the cancellation of classes in both public and private elementary and/or secondary schools regionwide that do not require any announcement.

Where typhoon signal no. 1 is raised by PAG-ASA, classes at the pre-school and elementary levels are automatically suspended in all public and private schools.

Where typhoon signal no. 2 is raised, classes in the pre-school, elementary and secondary levels are automatically suspended in all public and private schools.

B. Localized Suspension of Classes

Localized suspension is the cancellation of classes in both public and private elementary and/or secondary schools in specific divisions in the absence of typhoon signal warnings.

Suspension of classes in both public and private elementary and/or secondary schools in specific divisions shall be announced by the Division Superintendents or the mayors in their areas of jurisdiction. For specific areas or schools, the school head shall decide on the matter.

C. Parents' Responsibility

Parents have the ultimate responsibility for determining whether their children should go to school, even if no order for the suspension of classes has been issued, if they feel that travelling to or from school will place their children at risk. Parents should send an excuse letter the day the child returns to class.
