If public storm warning signal number 1 is declared over an area, there will not be any classes in preschool.

If signal number 2 is declared, there will be no classes in preschool, elementary and high school.

If signal number 3, there will be no classes in preschool, elementary, high school, and college, including graduate school.

The local government, DepEd said on its Twitter account, has the authority to declare suspensions in areas where there is no storm signal.
