Statement on the suspension of classes in private HEIs on Friday, November 13
In view of the announcement of the Office of the President to suspend work in all government offices and classes at all levels in public schools in Regions I, II, III, CALABARZON, MIMAROPA, V, Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR), and National Capital Region (NCR), the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) enjoins all other higher education institutions (HEIs), particularly private HEIs in the affected areas to suspend classes as needed and upon consultation with their respective local government units (LGUs).
HEIs located in affected areas are advised to undertake necessary adjustments in class or course requirements in consideration of their students and faculty who are presently recovering from the impact brought by Typhoon Ulysses.
We urge everyone to continue monitoring updates from the government and from reliable news sources and weather advisories.
