June is “Back-to-School” month; and it is also the start of the rainy season.
With this, the Baliwag Public Assistance and Complaint Center will be expecting inquiries thru the Baliwag Hotline about the suspension of classes due to heavy rains and/or typhoon.
During this time, Mayor Ferdie Estrella and the local government of Baliwag assures the public that we’ll be on top of any situation, to provide assistance and respond to emergencies that may arise, and appropriately declare the suspension of classes and offices as needed.
The DepEd also reiterates the suspension of classes guidelines during the rainy season, whereas classes in the affected areas shall be cancelled or suspended based on the PAGASA’s declaration of storm signals, as follows:
Signal No. 1 – Public and Private Pre-School and Kindergarten classes.
Signal No. 2 – Public and Private Pre-School and Kindergarten, Elementary, Junior and Senior High.
Signal No. 3 – Classes in All Levels.
Just like DepEd, the Local Government of Baliwag also encourages parents to practice their discretion in determining whether their children should go to school during typhoons, floods and other calamities, in the absence of cancellation or suspension of class announcement.
