QUEZON CITY, July 20 (PIA) -- The Department of Education (DepEd) said that some local government units have suspended classes for preschool, elementary and secondary public and private schools due to bad weather.
For the National Capital Region, classes were suspended in Pasay, Pateros, Manila and Para├▒aque, according to the 10 a.m.DepEd advisory sent to PIA.
In Region 4A, the classes were cancelled in Angono, Antipolo City, Cainta, Binangonan, and Teresa in Rizal; Rosario and Noveleta in Cavite.
