All class levels, Elementary-College, in Metro Manila will be suspended on Monday (September 28) according to NDCC. The class suspension announcement was due to severe flooding brought by typhoon Ondoy mostly in Metro Manila areas and some provincial cities. Bagyong Ondoy/ Storm “Ketsana” have brought the worst flooding in the country since 1967.

Rizal area was also included in the class suspension as several of its town particularly in Cainta remain submerged in floodwater. The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) also said that all college levels in CALABARZON (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon) will be suspended due to the current calamity. Finally after yesterday’s debacle, CHED officials and staff grew some “BALLS”.

CHED Chairman Emmanuel Angeles added that presidents of colleges and universities in other provinces, affected by Ondoy, could also suspend classes if necessary. The devastation brought by Ondoy was massive and mostly affected major cities in Metro Manila and Rizal. Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim said that tomorrow’s class suspension will allow school to clean campuses affected by typhoon Ondoy.

In case you’re wondering if there will be no classes on Wednesday(Sept. 30), read our article about DepED’s recent announcement.

    How true is it that CHED released a memo declaring suspension of classes until October 2?
