Schools with no classes due to flood (July 3, 2012)

State weather bureau PAGASA says a Low Pressure Area (LPA) spotted 30 kilometers north of Ambulong, Batangas is bringing scattered to widespread rains over Southern Luzon including Metro Manila.


At 7:25 am, PAGASA posted on Twitter that flooding is “possible” in “low-lying areas and those located near the river channels.”

“People are advised to monitor the weather condition,” the weather agency tweeted.

Flooding caused by overnight downpour prompted some schools in the National Capital Region (NCR) to suspend/cancel classes on Tuesday, July 3, 2012.

Here’s the list of schools with no classes today:
  • All preschool and high schools in Parañaque; Cainta, Rizal; Pasay City; and Navotas.
  • Karuhatan West Elementary School and Karuhatan National High School
  • Quezon City: Phil. Medical Women’s School (Pre-school-Elem);Teachers Village East (Pre-School); Flora Ilagan Highschool; Headway school for giftedness; and Eton International School.
  • Sto. Niño Catholic School, Taguig
  • Jose Abad Santos Memorial School, Manila
  • Afternoon classes in preschool to high school in Manila
  • Afternoon classes in PUP in Sta. Mesa, San Juan, Commonwealth and Taguig
  • All levels in UST suspended starting at 12:00 noon
  • Public preschool to high school in Mandaluyong
The Philippine Senate has likewise sent employees home as Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile declared suspension of work due to bad weather.

DILG secretery Jesse Robredo in an interview with Karen Davila on ANC’s “Headstart” Tuesday morning said “suspension of classes has been localized.”

He added that “barangay captains and school principals can suspend classes” and “the announcement should be done at 5am.”

To eliminate confusion as to who should declare suspension of classes when there’s flooding, we have attached Executive Order No. 66, issued by Malacañang on January 9, 2012, which prescribes rules on the cancellation or suspension of classes and work in government offices due to typhoons, flooding, other weather disturbances, and calamities.
