CLASS SUSPENSION GUIDELINES

 

Please be guided by CHED Memorandum Order No. 34 series of 2010:

  1. Classes at the collegiate level, including graduate school, are automatically suspended if the proper authorities have declared Storm Signal No. 3 or higher.
  2. Classes at the collegiate level, including graduate school, may be suspended at the discretion of heads of HEIs if special circumstances in their area, such as flooding, road damage, etc. warrant it.*
  3. HEI heads or their duly authorized representatives shall make the announcement for the suspension of classes not later than 5 o’clock in the morning of the day when it shall take effect, using all means of communication.
  4. Even without the suspension of classes, students who are unable to report to class or participate in scheduled activities such as exams, due to inclement weather, shall be given consideration and be allowed to make up for the missed class or activity.

 

*Note:

PMMS follows local government announcement of class suspensions via broadcast TV and Radio. 

PMMS re-echoes these announcements via text blasting, website updates or posts via new media/social media and other appropriate means of communication.

In the absence of an early class suspension announcement from PMMS, please follow item No. 4 of the CHED guidelines.  However, students may not use this as an excuse just to skip classes/avoid deadlines and may therefore be subject to verification by the Student Affairs Office and/or individual subject professors and instructors.
