#WalangPasok: Class suspensions on September 8, 2021

    MANILA, Philippines – Classes have been suspended in several areas of Luzon on Wednesday, September 8, 2021 due to inclement weather brought about by Severe Tropical Storm 'Jolina'.

    State weather bureau PAGASA said that 'Jolina' is forecast to move over the Tayabas Bay and make another landfall in the vicinity of eastern Batangas this morning.

    However, due to the recent southwestward trend in the shift of track forecasts, the possibility of landfall in the vicinity of northern Oriental Mindoro is not ruled out at this time. Afterwards, the storm will cross the Batangas-Cavite area before emerging over Manila Bay tonight. This will be followed by another landfall in the vicinity of Bataan Peninsula.

    Local government units (LGUs) added that government services on health services, disaster response and other vital services will remain operational.

    Distance learning

    Education Undersecretary Diosdado San Antonio said last year that classes may be cancelled due to power interruption as learners are dependent on online platforms for the distance learning - a mix of online classes and modular due to COVID-19 pandemic.

    According to the automatic class suspension guideline by DepEd, the LGUs have the authority to declare local suspensions.

    Meanwhile, cancellation of classes in the tertiary level especially in the private institutions will be at discretion of school administrators.
