Department of Education Secretary Leonor Briones clarifies that although Local Government Units have the authority to cancel classes, different schools and universities can take the initiative to suspend their respective classes so long as they deem it necessary.

Secretary Briones reminds schools that “Even as the Local Governments are the ones who are authorized to make the announcement. Kung sa tingin ng head of the school hindi talaga pwede pumasok yung mga bata, they can take the initiative”.

This is to maintain the safety and security of their students.
