READ: DepEd Guidelines for Class Suspension During Typhoons
According to the automatic class suspension guideline by DepEd, LGUs have the authority to declare local suspensions in areas where there is no storm signal.
When there is a storm signal in a particular area as declared by PAGASA, classes are automatically suspended. However, in cases where there is no storm signal, but a calamity is present; the local government unit (LGU) and not DepEd would decide and announce the class suspensions.
