New Rules on Suspension of Classes and Government Work (EO 66)

Whether you welcome staying at home during inclement weather (suspension/cancellation of school and public work) or you simply watch the weather in the name of safety, it would be very helpful to know when schools and government offices are closed if a certain typhoon warning signal is raised.

President Benigno Aquino issued a new order prescribing the rules on the cancellation or suspension of classes and work in government offices in case of typhoons, flooding or other calamities. The following guidelines shall be followed for the automatic cancellation or suspension of classes in all public and private elementary, secondary and tertiary schools, as well as work in all government offices:

a. When Signal No. 1 is raised by PAGASA, classes at the pre-school level, in the affected area, shall be automatically cancelled or suspended.

b. When Signal No. 2 is raised by PAGASA, classes at the pre-school, elementary and secondary levels, in the affected area, shall be automatically cancelled or suspended.

c. When Signal No. 3 or higher is raised by PAGASA, classes at preschool, elementary, secondary, and tertiary levels, in the affected area, including graduate school, as well as work in all government offices, shall be automatically cancelled or suspended.
